You have convinced me. I have to experience this on my next trip. I will be coming from Kyoto and I just read there is a new limousine bus directly from Kyoto so that should make things easier.

Do you mean it is good for the economy to take local trips like this instead of flying around during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic?

Hike to the suspension bridge
Hi! I love the detail in this entry. Did you go into the coffee house when we went on the short walk to the suspension bridge? Do you want any pics of the area? Shabbat Shalom, Miriam

Natasha and the paintings.
Just a minor correction - Natasha is standing in front of paintings by Renoir and Degas, not Rembrandt as it says in the caption. Other than that - terrific!

Thank you!
Now I see for myself what Judy & Trevor have been seeing, though my view is vicarious and third-hand. Question: why is it called the "Russian Culture Show?" Is it strictly for tourists? Propaganda? Is it connected to the Giselle (the ballet) that Judy mentioned?

Greetings from frosty Northwood!!
Thoroughly enjoying your adventures from the comfort of my study!! Did Don -The man from somewhere near Atlantis-enjoy the diving? My two entries for the caption competition--"Here's one I caught earlier" and " Grandpa, what big feet you've got!!" Its freezing here and forecasting snow over the weekend. When do you finish and are you back to Israel or the UK? No real news-xcept B'Sha'a Tova, Ilana is with child! and your house is still standing-from the outside anyway!! Its the Melava Malka tomorrow so I will be thinking of you...We weren't going but someone has very kindly (!!)invited us!! Shabbat Shalom and safe travelling xxxx Marsha and the gangxxxx
