India. It was so nice to just wander, smell the donuts and see the lines for the donuts, and enjoy the quiet of Monday morning when businesses are barely waking up.
At the beautiful oasis known as the Chinese garden, daphne.
The nickname is too perfect: Drama Girl
She IS dramatic.
Lots of stone, different ways of seeing.
Bamboo and a cut-out treat.
I delighted in this b/c I was born in this cycle: year of the snake.good Thai food. I was very pleased with the easy walking, easy bus stop and schedule finding, easy pace. I got back in time to nap and take a super chill yoga class. It would have been perfect if I hadn't come back to see that the gorgeous flowers from the opening had become massive ant habitats. I already have a terrible aversion to ant colonies ever since I lived with them in Korea. But after a bunch of cringing, covering my hands with gloves and rushing the arrangements outside, running to the store for more ant traps, I showered, cooked, and calmed down. So I am happy again, especially since I have a new batch of bark thread I made last night, and Rachel did a sweet post for my book.
