'ja miss us?

eta: photos removed

We were running around the Tiergarten Schönbrunn in Vienna...

...and visiting the animals there.

We were jumping on trampolines at Trampolino in Bratislava,


visiting a spa full of warm mineral pools (no bathing suit pix of either of us--shocker), and exploring the nearby city centre as we searched for ice cream in a little village in Hungary. I don't think I ever knew what it was named.

And we still had time for playing with friends, face-painting...


...and shopping...
before heading home.
The pink acoustic guitar was going to be carried on by me and presented on her birthday (it was her most frequent request after cake) but she discovered it early. So, it's already filling our flat with music. (Term used loosely.)

Big thanks to our friends in Bratislava for playing host, driver, tour guide and chef! We had a great trip.

Hi Kate and Lexi
We are missing you and still have a homeless red guitar :)

Thanks for coming - the photos made me smile and Hannah says she wants to be a puppy again with Lexi.

Lindy said...

Wow, first Finland, then Hungary and Austria... you guys lead an exciting life. Lexi looks like she had a blast. I see Baby George went along, too. I am guessing that the stringed instrument is a uke.

阿彌陀佛 無相佈施


不要吃五辛(葷菜,在古代宗教指的是一些食用後會影響性情、慾望的植
物,主要有五種葷菜,合稱五葷,佛家與道家所指有異。

近代則訛稱含有動物性成分的餐飲食物為「葷菜」,事實上這在古代是稱
之為腥。所謂「葷腥」即這兩類的合稱。 葷菜
維基百科,自由的百科全書
(重定向自五辛) 佛家五葷

在佛家另稱為五辛,五種辛味之菜。根據《楞嚴經》記載,佛家五葷為大
蒜、小蒜、興渠、慈蔥、茖蔥;五葷生啖增恚,使人易怒;熟食發淫,令
人多慾。[1]

《本草備要》註解云:「慈蔥,冬蔥也;茖蔥,山蔥也;興渠,西域菜,云
即中國之荽。」

興渠另說為洋蔥。) 肉 蛋 奶?!
