It’s funny how things can turn around in a week. Last Friday my Nana was unwell in hospital, now she’s on the mend and almost ready to come home! Last Friday the hole in my bathroom wall had still not been fixed (after 10 weeks and two no-show plasterers), now it’s all patched up! Last Friday the sun was shining, and now it’s overcast… Oh well, two out of three ain’t bad!
In light of my good mood today, I thought I’d share these happy photos we took in Kyoto – the Texan and I were trying to work out where The Philosopher’s Walk began and ended (without success, we abandoned the idea eventually), and while bickering along the way, we stumbled across a disused railway track lined with the fluffiest sakura. It was heaving with people attempting to snap a pretty photo of their kids or significant other, surrounded by clouds of pink flowers, including lots of brides in their gorgeous wedding dresses. We may not have found The Philosopher’s Walk, but we did chance upon something really special – and it stopped our bickering, too! Japan was full of surprises like this – one minute you’d be walking along a seemingly unremarkable city street, the next you’d be wandering into a beautifully idyllic temple, or garden, or an alleyway lined with old ryokans and ochaya. What a place!
