    Hi G! Found some time to visit you on your awesome adventure! Such fun and imaginative renditions of ….Trending in Blu’. 🙂

      Thank you Beatriz! Love the “Blu” wheat pastes around town – I am holding back from researching this urban artist since it is so enjoyable to be walking along and find another one – like a treasure hunt! I’ll find the artist before I leave, but for now, nice not to know : )

    Love the photos Georgia! and those lionssssssss. Awesome! heeheee. I wondered about the size of those wheat paste pixs? They look small like maybe picture frame size 11×14?
    We just got back from camping, a much needed break and very sabbath like. hmmmmmm.
    Love you Miss you Enjoy.

      Hi Chris, glad you got some time to camp! I think you are right about the sizes, maybe slightly larger. Love the lions too – and in general, am always on the look out for cool ones, which in Europe one is often obliged!

      Blessings to you and Ed, so glad to find a note from you here!
