The Land of the golden gods

Offered warm welcome!

Reclines in golden splendor

Charming and shining!

  1. Beautiful Haiku, that is set off by the image! So very lovely!

  2. Your words are such a lovely complement to this elegant photo, Cynthia! It sounds like you had a wonderful trip! xx

    • Thank you Lauren, I had a most wonderful trip, enjoyed so many beautiful sites and places– meeting warm, gentle, and friendly people in spite of the language barrier, and the cuisine is great! I learned a lot, and will treasure the memories!

  3. Ahhh, so lovely! I am so relieved to see you, Cynthia–maybe I wasn’t paying attention that you’d planned to be away, but during the recent “technical craziness on WP”, I thought I’d lost you somehow (okay, I was having a bit of personal craziness too–but was assured that I’m “allowed”!). Anyway–I’m just thrilled to see you, and glad to hear you had a wonderful trip. I SO MISSED YOU! God bless you abundantly today, and always–love, sis Caddo

    • Hi Caddo! It’s nice to be back feeling recharged, light and easy, with stories to tell and yummy oriental recipes to try out! Re the ” wp technical craziness,” I thought all along it had something to do with Commenters’ Season highlighting and featuring them up front for all their precious comments, ha ha!

  4. beautiful, Cynthia!

    Ciao, Francina
