Been Meaning to Post!

But, I keep getting sidetracked.  I also need to get on the ball and travel somewhere.  Hopefully, I'll do that in the next few months.

Hanami in Japan2

Aren't the cherry blossoms a sight to behold?  I especially like the picture where you can see the castle past the blooms.

Hanami in Japan

'Hanami' is when one views the cherry blossoms in the spring.  It also involves a lot eating and drinking while viewing.  Notice all of these in the pictures.  It's like a dream, isn't it?

Nagoya, Japan2

Three more pictures, this time of downtown Nagoya which was always just a pleasant subway ride away.

Nagoya, Japan

For those of you who have never been to Japan, you may not think these pictures very exotic.  They were taken from my balcony and show a neighborhood called 'Kurokawa' in Nagoya.  It was very convenient for me to live there as the subway was just across the street from my apartment building.  I also loved walking these streets in the evenings.  I lived in Japan from March through August '07.

Just A Reminder . . .

to myself of what I will be returning to at some point in the future.  Another scene from 'Ananuri' in the Republic of Georgia.

Bardejov And Surrounding Areas7

Various farm elements used in the traditional village.  I wish I could recognize some of them!
