I love all your photos.
Soooo interesting.
...especially all those crosses, and the tree sweaters,
and that beautiful "rear end."
Great pics.

I absolutely adored all these beautiful photos.
You have a "good eye" for taking photos.....very very nice.
Now I want to visit this lovely country and become immersed in its culture...thanks for taking us on the trip with you.
I would have jumped at the opportunity too to go along as hand-maiden and hold the suitcases.
