Explore Dream Discover said Twain

Greetings. I am taking a small break from blogging.

I'm leaving on another trip today. To Rajasthan, again! See you all in a few days.

What a wonderful world...

I'm singing the
Louis Armstrong
version of this track
as I put up this post for




I see trees of green, red roses too
My room with a view

I see them bloom, for me and you

And I think to myself...
What a wonderful world!

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
Camel Back's Road

The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
A late evening moon

And I think to myself...
What a wonderful world!

The colors in the rainblow, so pretty in the sky
Sunset in the Himalayas

And also on the faces of people going by
Children residing near Company Bagh

I see friends shaking hands, saying: How do you do?
They are really saying: I love you.

Watching the world go by from the window!

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll know
much more, than I'll ever know
And I think to myself...
What a wonderful world!

My entry for this week is from my archives of photographs shot in Petra of Jordan which needs no introduction.

Near the Siq

I am posting two photographs, one of a typical scenery shot near Wadhi Al-Mudhlim above, the other of what the locals call as Al-Khazneh when it was cast with the shade of the tall mountains around.

The Treasury, also called Al Khazneh

The inclusion of some people in the above picture does give a rough idea of the size of the Treasury, isn't it? I also like to view how the mountain in the top right hand side is bathed in full and direct sunlight.
