Tara....absolutely awesome pictures!....and just like you to make your visit into a spiritual journey....I am curious however...from the perspective of my armchair mind say you spend a week, or a month, here or there, in some tiny village or other do you spend your time from hour to hour or day to day while you are there?

Hanging out in tiny spots...
Great question, Bernie, and it's great to hear from you. I often spend lots of time in places others visit for an hour on a tour bus. First, I'm really living down here, not just traveling, so I take a couple of hours a day, sitting in the plaza reading and chatting with people who approach me.

I'm also quite good at just relaxing and being. Somehow, pleasant days just pass. Ciao!
