  20. rakkkar says:

    That tea ceremony appears to be something I'd enjoy a lot (yes I drink too much tea and no I can never get enough). Kyoto also looks like a gorgeous place, you could not have given a better tour of it. The last few seconds of you walking the path are a visual bliss as well, love your style! I just wanna grab my money and spend it on the next flight, though I might just have to wait a little longer ?
