You gotta love a smiling lion. The look on his face makes me wonder what could he be possibly thinking. Well, it’s just a statue made from someone’s imagination. Yet, does that mean the artist wasn’t thinking that the lion had something special on his mind?
I like the little details on castles like these statues. Walls are never just plain, but have a little flavor to them. And usually they say something more than just a decoration. Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities in the world. And the castle there has so much history to it, it’s a great place to visit.
Another shot of a pyramid in Egypt. It’s been a while since I’ve visited the country, but it’s hard to watch what’s been going on there the last few years. When I was there, the people were so nice and helpful. It was a very enjoyable trip. I only hope that someday soon they are at peace again as a country. Of course, Democracy isn’t always the peaceful way of life that it’s made out to be. Just watch American politics over the past few months and that’s made obvious.
The Muhammed Ali Mosque in Cairo, Egypt. I’ve read that some people don’t really like the look of the outside, but I really like its architecture. I think it’s a beautiful place. There’s a clock here given by the King of France that’s never worked. What’s up with that?
