Lovely splashes of yellow on your Russian tour. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm on "Africa time" and using go-slow tactics! Can't seem to motivate myself to do much. Have a great week. (((hugs))) Jo

This time it is different. The "mellow yellow" draws attention for its rarity in every picture. Thanks.

Oh, the things you have seen! Now that I've decided that I am a traveler, I will go back through your older posts. You are an inspiration.

So beautiful! I love that you live in Canada! I have many relatives from there, and I have a little bit of an obsession with British Columbia! I want to visit so bad! Have you ever been there?
(Thank you so much for your kind words on my poem, I haven't written in years!)

Very interesting to see the same type of towers in the Red Square in Moskow, but here in combination with wood! You were in some unlikely places, Kay!
