  1. I enjoyed it very much – thank you! I can’t say I really blame the writer; her reaction seems quite natural, but I have absolutely no idea what she means by this sentence in the opening section: “The garden tells a sad story of ignorance.” Can you enlighten me?

    The photos are fabulous. I have two Israeli friends who recently travelled part of the old Silk Road and the blue tiling reminds me of their photos of old mosques and other buildings in Bukhara and Samarkand . What a wondrous place.
