Ten on Tuesday: Off Book

Carole picked a great Ten on Tuesday topic this week. . . but I'm going off book.  I'm suffering from jet lag.  I miss the sidewalk cafés.  And my morning pain au chocolat.  And, well, for that matter -- spring!  So today. . . I bring you my own Ten on Tuesday.  I'll call it. . . Ten Great Things About My Travels.

1.  Interacting with famous landmarks.

I had a wonderful trip.  It'll take some time to sort through my photos (nearly 1,500!) and organize my life again.  But stay tuned!  I have much to tell!

And what horrible weather to come home to!
I loved the photo of the building draped in Wisteria the best. When I lived in Nara (Japan), the central city park had oodles of wisteria bowers. It was lovely, and I ate lunch there every workday. :-}
