Wire Bugs, Skype and A Taj Mahal Gallery

1    Sometime ago we gave away some brass wire through Free-cycle and today, one of the people who had some, sent me an email to tell me what she has done with it. She has made these very pretty Feeding Bugs! Please click on the symbol if the bugs aren’t showing.


2   We have Skyped with Daniel and Ami in Barcelona, so lovely to talk to them and see them again. We’ve missed them while we’ve been away.

3   I’ve been sorting our holiday photos and have put together a gallery of photos that we took at the Taj Mahal. You can click on any photo for an enlargement.

21st October – The Taj Mahal, The Red Fort and A Marvellous Massage

1. The Taj Mahal was so beautiful I can’t begin to tell you. On first glimpse my eyes just filled with tears, it just takes one’s breath away. This stunningly beautiful place was built by Shahjahan as a mausoleum for his Most Beloved Wife. What a gift of love.

2 It being Sunday there were families out in all their finery enjoying a day out together. Everywhere we passed beautiful families. We met one lovely family who wanted their photo taken with me when we were at the Red Fort. The Mother and I had smiled at each other several times as we had met around the site and then she stopped and asked if I would have my picture taken with them. She then put her hands on each side of my face and said, “Beautiful beautiful!” which was so lovely as to me they were the beautiful ones.

3. Late this afternoon I had the best massage ever and now feel relaxed and revived after three very busy days. By the time I came out it was dark and I got this photo of the steps down to the pool and the stone elephants.
