    #27 Lisa, if you are really keen on photography, my best advice to you is to take an on line course. I completed a diploma on line many years ago and though I knew quite a lot until I did the course. If you pick the right one, you will be given practicals to do every week, or in your own time, if weekly is too much, and you should be able to get great feedback from your on line tutor. As for Photoshop, you don't really need it and there are many cheaper and less complex programs around, but Photoshop is the industry standard and well worth the time investment. An alternative editor, which has great crits and is much cheaper, is Lightroom, but I have no hands on experience with this. Why not join a local club? They're not hard to find and you'll pick up many interesting tips to get you on your way.

    #13 #14 I love your frank honesty Ken :)) That means you are down to earth! I like the idea of keeping a notepad with me. I always forget so many details when I travel. It's easy to forget. I think I will grab one and keep it in my purse when we leave. Dr. Google is very generous, isn't he? I want to learn how to take raw photos. I met a professional photographer on IG a few years back and he still uses an older camera and said he won't use anything but. He does the same, develops, turns them into jpegs and I'm not sure about Photoshop. I just began teaching myself how to use Photoshop. I hate when I take a nice photo but no matter what settings I use it may look drab. I also use a few free photo editors too. Is it hard to take raw and then develop them? Sort of sounds relaxing to me. I'm glad you and your wife had such a good time. Welcome home a few weeks late. My husband and I were both really sick this past month and I missed a lot. He's still recovering from pneumonia and we leave on Friday, yikes! Send the healing Gods LOL

    #25 The images of this fascinating country, Gert, were bursting to be taken by my trusty Canon. You are of course correct in your assessment that I took some time to compile these two blogs to date, but much of the time was taken up in choosing only a very few photos from the 1200 or so developed jpegs, taken over a period of some two weeks, so as to hopefully match the blog subjects. When the culture, art and scenery of the places we visit is so stimulating, preparation time flies past, as you undoubtedly know yourself. Thanks for the compliments.

    @Ken Boddie Along with your previous post, these are two of the most interesting travel pieces I have read. Fascinating information on a country and culture that is quite foreign to me, and your photos are superb. Thanks for taking what must have been a chunk of your time to compile these posts. Shared into the Travel Hive. Ever looking forward to the next Ken Boddie travel post!

    #12 Thank you so much, Lada, for your compliments. I am glad you enjoyed this post. So many foreigners when travelling in Japan are fascinated by the kimono, which, when comprising a beautiful silk with subtle hues, worn by a woman with poise and maturity, is the epitomy of the Japanese female attire. To illustrate, I refer you to the two lovely ladies (above) who I photographed at the tea ceremony. The three young girls, however, who I shot in Tokyo's Hamarikyu Gardens (refer this earlier post: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/did-we-miss-cherry-blossom-season ), although also beautifully attired, almost appear to be casually dressed by comparison, as is befitting of a stroll outdoors in the uplifting cherry blossom.

    #10 Sorry, Lisa, but forgot to answer your query about returning. Yes, we have been back a couple of weeks but I am still working on those photos, which take a bit of fine tuning depending upon the weather, as I shoot everything raw and then develop at leisure into jpegs, using Photoshop.
    Ken Boddie
    22/05/2017 #13 Ken Boddie
    #10 Sorry to disappoint, Lisa, but my memory was shot years ago. That is why I take so many photographs (approx 1200 on this Japan trip) and make copious notes on my travels. I keep a notebook, which fits neatly into my top picket, on every trip. This is supplemented by whatever print-outs I can accumulate on the way and, of course, Dr Google's serum of 'post trip truth'

    #7 Ken, I enjoyed reading your beautiful post that shows your many talents. You are a writer, photographer, and a poet. Poetry is shown in your photographs. Japanese culture and society are fascinating, particularly this mysterious aspect of Japanese life regarding Geishas, or Maiko and Geiko terms. Now I understand some facts about their distinctive dress, hair and lip painting style.
    I would really like to experience the tea ceremony, dressed in kimono. ๐Ÿ‘˜ ๐Ÿต

    2 apples
    6 celery stalks
    3 inches of ginger root
    1 lemon
    For Turmeric Milk: Make a Paste with water and turmeric on the stove, I add some cinnamon, a pinch of black pepper. Let it cool. Then I use coconut milk, about 1/4 tsp of the paste and some raw honey - heat the milk and stir in the rest. It's not overly tasty. I actually prefer tea with turmeric, honey, lemon, and pinch of pepper.

    Same here Lisa, Came on 2 weeks after returning from Mexico, the wife and I both. Fortunately it only lasted a few days for her, but it took me a solid month to get past the crud. It seemed like it took a good hard fever to burn it out, then I recovered fairly quickly. So if it is still hanging with you, you might try turning up the thermostat and piling on the blankets.

    #42 Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory. I had half a teaspoon to my milk everyday. Along with some ground black pepper. A glass of radish juice is a great pain reliever too. Try garlic raw. Fresh or exposed for ten mins after chopping. These are great home remedies Lisa! Good health to you my buddyBee!

    #41 Thanks for all the great advice @Praveen Raj Gullepalli! Does pickled garlic have the same effect? Hmm, not sure I could drink garlic water lol. I like the clove suggestion too. I had no idea clove has blood thinning properties. I heard Turmeric also has blood thinning properties along with being a great anti-inflammatory. I made a turmeric paste a few weeks back when I first became ill and I used way too much paste in my turmeric milk. My stomach paid for that one the next day haha. Live and learn, right? I think I could find fun ways to incorporate raw garlic into dishes like rice as you suggested. I'm so used to using powder because it's convenient, must start buying it fresh :)

    Get well soon Lisa! Lovely ride there, by the Rockies! Reminds me of John Denver too yes! Ethereal immortal voice! You know what? You both oughtta try adding a clove of garlic everyday to a meal. Chew it raw with the salad or bite of bread or spoonful of rice. In time you will see you have built up terrific immunity! If your stomach is sensitive to raw garlic..chop one clove and leave the pieces overnight in a glass of water and drink that first thing in the morning (minus the choppees). This will definitely help. Good for RTI and stomach ailments. My wife just swallows a clove with a glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach. It has totally relieved her of stomach related inconvenience. It has many other benefits. All the above do not give you garlic breath! ;) ...and the sulphur keeps them devils away too, yoo hoo!

    #38 Paul, we use a whole load of spices out here in our foods. The kingly clove, eaten slowly...not bitten down and chewed but soaked and absorbed until it becomes a bland bite easily consumed...can not only reduce toothache ( remember clove oil?) but also acts as a potent blood thinner. Eat a couple a day and see if it makes some difference. You gotta do this regular kinda. Atleast for three fortnights. In fact many chew a clove after every meal as a custom. Good health to you and Lisa!

    Reading this article made me travel the country, and leave aside those news that we do not like. Unfortunately, the wonders of South Africa and the African continent should be more exalted by sometimes covering the terrible news of persecution and hunger, not that this is not important, but denigrates and causes wonders to be hidden. What is beautiful must always be shared!

    #29 I sincerely hope that the Shiraz fermentation process (yeast + sugar = alcohol + carbon dioxide) is enough to counter the bacterial input from animal waste, Lisa. After all, farmers have been using chicken poo, etc as a natural fertiliser for years, and I'm sure that the original treading of the grapes with sweaty feet, after a hard day's picking, would have even turned the Romans off wine, had it been thought problematic to consumption.
    Let's raise our wine glasses, Lisa, and drink to that natural bouquet! ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿท

    #27 Perhaps I allowed may imagination to run away with me, Lisa, on the gathering process, as Kopi Luwak is a relatively large industry in Indo. The Dept of Ag in Oz, however, appears to agree with my scepticism. If you wish to learn more about this intriguing subject, then my good friend, Dr Google, will doubtless be all too happy to assist. ๐Ÿค—

    #20 @Ken Boddie, if I could have given you 10 plusses on this I would have. I could not stop laughing after I read about the poor soul who has to pick through the poo beans, you've had a cup of it (not the droppings... my laughter began there) and it's shit coffee- uhmm well, sort of literally?!! I want to see the pics. The people who eat and/or drink things we aren't privy to just rave about it. I don't think poo or shall I say, shit coffee beans would delight me. Soak them in bourbon and I will gladly have a cup. I don't even drink bourbon but for some reason that sounds a bit tasty.

    #19 I'd love to show you around the joys of Yogya, Gert, and I have a few family members who would be happy to assist. But I would suggest a more expert guide in the Prambanan area, as the temple complex (which includes Plaosan and Sewu temples) is extensive and the history beyond the retention of my ageing grey matter.

    #17 Ah the delicious smell of kopi luwak, Lisa (the Indos have a problem with the letter 'f'). Banned by Australia's Department of Immigration, for obvious biological reasons, the beans are passed naturally through the digestive system of a civet ('luwak' in Bahasa Indonesia), which is more like a cat than a monkey. I've often wondered about the poor sod who's job is to retrieve the beans from a fresh pile of civet droppings. I've had a cup of this (the coffee not the droppings), which I'm embarrassed to say I paid for, in a coffee plantation in Bali, and have the photos to prove it. Personally, I think it's 'shit' coffee, how about you, @Paul Walters? I seem to remember we had a discussion about kopi luwak previously, @Dean Owen?

    #15 What is the traditional way coffee is served in Indonesia Ken? I keep thinking of the monkeys who poop the beans and those are used but I forget where that is popular? Foodies will say it's the best. I don't think I could drink that coffee lol. As for their calves, I noticed! It would be a very hard job, indeed. I like how you inserted song titles, you are pretty crafty there Ken :))

    #11 not a great fan of the traditional way coffee is served in Indo, Lisa, where I tend to prefer mint tea. Moving on from the 'lucky' former Sultan's propensity to rock and roll with his groupies, and since the subject of lava flows is too hot to handle, let me expand upon the rigours of the 'tukang becak' or Indo's version of the bikie. As you suggest, these guys are fit and have calf muscles like the biceps on The Rock or Mr T. Hard way to earn a living. As for the Affandi giant, all I can say is that 'art' comes in many shapes and sizes. ๐Ÿค”

    What a great description of Jogja (java) which I first thought you were going to mention coffee ;-) I love the photos. I bet the Sultan felt pretty 'lucky,' eh? The very old buildings are well preserved and kept. The Hindu Temple looks amazing. Omgosh, I can't imagine being in that bunker when the lava came flowing down :(( The photo of you and your wife standing next to the statue of artist Affandi- love it! I wonder if the men who are human taxis ever get tired? That has to be a tough job physically but they have probably been doing it so long it's easy peasy for them?! Great tour guide @Ken Boddie!

    #18 @Claire L Cardwell that's funny ; For many years (I have witnesses --unfortunately my ex is the one with the most data and she's not allowed to play...but there's still enough cooberation [sorry, something hit me on the head , and I'm not spelling easily] ..I'll stick.witnesses)...any way it used to happen all the time...now it's just once in a while; that, if strangers needed to ask me something...they would always preface the query with: "excuse me ...do you speak English?"
    Whatever of my friends were around when it happened would (naturally) just crack-up...and over time, it got more surreal, 'cause if I was walking with one of my mates who had already seen it happen before...and then they "had the privilege" of seeing it again...we'd both go to "giggles land".

    The would be "seeker of information of unknown origin"...would rapidly scurry away at the point.
    It happened the most when I first moved from New Jersey to grad school in upstate NY...which makes it even more ridiculous.
    I still don't know if I learnt anything from the experiences (oh, I wanna start using your spellings for words like "learnt" and "spelt"...I really like 'em...I hope that's okay --it's probably my penchant for absorbing things that hit my ear nicely...that cause the "do you speak English thingie to happen in the first place) ...but I don't care.
    You're not weird to me FWIW.

    @Ken Boddie - I am not sure, it would have been back in 2007/8 and I have a sneaking suspicion that the pics are film, not digital.... As far as the "to be sure, to be sure" side of me, yes I do get a bit tiddly at a wine farm! I was brought up not to spit, under any circumstances, so obviously the wine has to be imbibed, not swilled and spat!

    I trust that the 'lost' pics of the Wine Farm aren't due to a temporarily induced memory loss, as a consequence of overindulgent wine tasting the Irish way, "to be sure, to be sure"? ๐Ÿคฃ
