Like Dorothy and Toto . . .

First of all, this:

. . . has been stuck in my head since Thanksgiving weekend, when I went to Kyoto.  It was a fantastic weekend.  I think that Kyoto might be the most beautiful city I have ever visited.  Check out some pictures!

  1. Beautiful Kyoto. This post brings back memories. I was here for about a week a couple of summers ago. I really enjoyed my time there. Great pictures.
