Devika, Pat and I have a Buddha statue in our garden; we're Catholic. Our Jewish neighbor has a St. Francis. New York, New York.

Thanks, John and Dalloway. You know, an American presidential candidate (I'll name no names) once said he wished New York would break off and float out to sea.

Well said, Devika.

Nice! I love the irony.

Long ago I visited the town Assisi. I stayed in a house (small hotel) which was built in the 13th century. I will never forget the first morning (early morning) in Assisi. The view from my window was a view at the medieval town. Really. No car. No man or woman in modern clothes. I just saw the old roofs, the houses, the pavement, the trees, the sky ...

It was like a time travel.

Thanks, Magyar.

Yes, angelika, there is something special about Assisi, gift shops or no gift shops.

That's one way to look at it, tikkis. Unfortunately, this image goes back a few years; we were last in Assisi in 1993.
