“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world
To keep the body in good health is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear. Water surrounds the lotus flower, but does not wet its petals.”
The Buddha -- Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C

Unintended favorites

“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” - Robert Louis Stevenson

After a trip i always came home with a few thousands pictures ( can't help clicking :-) ) and going thru them takes a lot time but looking at the pics i felt like i was doing the trip all over again and i realized that many of my favorite photos have nothing to do with the sight that i set out to see

 I saw this lady walking a pig on the road next to the school that we visited in Otavalo - Ecuador


 This sand 'painting' was on the beach where i went to watch the sunset


 Went to Yosemite to see the snow and on the way to the bus leaving the park i suddenly
 looked up


 This pattern was on the sand at sunset


 Saw this cutie on the hike to Mt Rainier, finnally caught him/her taking a breath after a good chase :-)


 An overnight stop in a sleepy but lovely lakeside town in Norway turned out to be one of my favorite places to stay. I can still hear the sound of the little waves hitting the shore

Wandering the area around Geirangerfjord in Norway


 From the bus in Norway


 This beautiful lady was one of the vendors in Peru


 Looking down from the restaurant in Peru where i went for lunch


 Zion national park


 At Havasu Falls in Havasupai Indian reservation


 I came to Verona to see Juliet's balcony (as in Romeo & Juliet) but i fell for these windows
