Kyoto's Golden Pavillion and China's Green Beer

 It's fabulous to see what you want to see and to see it on a clear day. That's what happened with our day in Kyoto and our visit to the Golden Pavillion. The trick of this picture was to keep the hundreds of other tourists out of the picture (thanks to the miracle of photo editing/cropping). The color and the lines of this temple are so pleasing to my eye. On a silly note we were in Tianjin, China, on St Patrick's Day, and John brought along some green food coloring so that he could celebrate properly.

Oh, funny! The latter. Only a Chicagoan would have to have green beer on St. Paddy's Day. :-) I wonder what the locals thought. :-) He didn't dye any of the rivers green, did he?

What a lovely photo of the two of you at the temple. You look happy to be there.

John added the green food coloring to his beer surreptitiously so that our dining companions (we were at a table for 10) as well as the two waitresses thought he was performing voodoo. It was pretty funny!
