The Taste of Green





"Another piece..."

"You`ll be a frog in your next life," my son says. Then, he croaks.

I don`t care about the future. Here and now – the special taste of matcha cheese cake. Matcha – the fine, powdered green tea, which is used for the tea ceremony! Our Japanese guide tells us what we will do tomorrow and leaves us.

Around the corner
a moss-covered path
leads to the Buddha

thank you very much, Polona!


"...(ready for the match?)..." The German-team was lucky (3 : 2)! But everyone here say that the Turkish players played very well (especially the second Turkish goal -- wow!). Here is a big party this evening. What will happen on Sunday? Wait and see...

I love that link between matcha and mossy path, they look so alike. Great.
