Travel Thursday | Ancient Civilization


Oh la la

My oh my!
Why oh why?
Did I say Africa
When it's Egypt by far

Are you aware?
That Egypt -
where most civilization meet
Is in Africa
And not Middle East -
Land of Oasis

Did you not hear?
If not, then click here
Believe me now dear?
Hehehee... Queer?

Am not being silly
Just plain ol' Lily
Sharing her story
In a way that is funny

Yet to blog on Egypt trip 2002.

Yes indeed! Egypt is a beautful beautiful country...steeped in history and you really feel connected to the past when you go there! so much to see and do there!

I have been to Africa only once. It was Morocco. I would like to visit Africa once again if I have a chance.
Nice monochrome photo. It really fits to the desert.

Please let me know where you are supposed to stay in Japan. As far as I am concerned, there aren't many festivals during your stay... I could find a Plum festivals in the temples/shrines. That does not sound exciting but it's an option, you know:)
Have a wonderful weekend.

I see that you are interested in photography! You might enjoy my blog:

Every day I post photographs of glorious vistas, charming close-ups, videos, recipes, and interesting tidbits of life in Great Britain for the pleasure of Britophiles and photo-enthusiasts everywhere!

Lily Riani said...


apparently 7000 years of history, i think i should have been there for 2 weeks and that prob account for 3000 years of story.


since its my first time, eveyrthing will be great and beautiful, am planning to stay in ueno as there's a park there (happy). prob go to hakone for 2d1n.

Lily Riani said...
