I'm having a nice cup of hot water. No tea in it. Not even any gin in it. Just a cup of hot water. I feel so virtuous.

In that case, I'm just off to find out what the hell Tim Tams are . My preferred indulgence is a Cadbury Flake, and anything in White Chocolate.

Black decaff in my cup. Another fasting day, and the coffee helps to delay the hunger pangs. A little trick I learned when I lived in Baton Rouge, as we were told the best way to experience a little of the wacky baccy was on an empty stomach. When in Rome...

Ah, for Tim Tams you'll need to have an Aussie friend who is your source.

Meanwhile, it's a perfect winter day here. Slight frost overnight, high today should be around 5 or 6. And the sun is out.

No police- escort since Assyut, but we have to give our route. I have seen many fantastic things in Luxor, the Valley of Kings and in the temple of Karnak. Astounding all.

I'm in Aswan now and am going to see Abu Simbel on wednesday; a long ride through the desert and back, but the plane is not a good option any more.
We have to drive in convoy though...

Thursday by train to Ca´ro. There a demonstrations now on the Tahrir square, so it is good I walked it last week. We'll see.

In my cup: water
In my hand: vegetarian moussaka, bread, baba ganoush.

Good to hear from you - sounds like a great trip. Remember, didn't happen unless there are photos .

Googled them, and they do look good (so does shoe leather right now though, as I'm nearing the end of a fast day...).

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alCM3tS3QFI )

Good morning, everyone! Happy Tuesday! I have a great big mug of East India Company's "Royal Breakfast" tea to start my day. I have go into Kyoto today and buy some more. I'm out of three of my standards and need to re-stock, so today's long walk will be from Kyoto Station heading north to the import store an the street of Kyoto's third bridge (a reference for those who remember reading 'Shogun.')

Wait a minute! I thought 'Tim Tams' were from the UK?!?
I never saw them before I shopped in Tessco in Thailand. They were pointed out to me by some Brit friends. I just assumed that they were a British treat! Humph! We live and learn... Actually, my downfall is Walker Shortbread Cookies, even without the chocolate... but I'm easy.

OK. I confess. That really was photo of Sean Penn that I took from the Internet. I didn't want to post my real photo as it might inflame too many hearts. I don't want to be held responsible for any more marital break-ups.

I'm going to pour another mug of tea, practice playing some Christmas Carols for my Senior Citizens class, (which is difficult for an American Jewish/Taoist in Japan) and go for a walk!
