    ISAIAH 58: 6-12
    Is not this the fast that I have chosen?to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
    Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house?when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
    Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
    Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
    And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
    And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
    And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in

    We recently visited Japan and stayed in Yokohama with extended family.We took a drive to Mount Fugi where the eggs are boiled in the water coming from the steam vents and are eaten hard boiled for longevity.the egg shells are black when finished and peanuts are also boiled in this manner

    We took a bus tour of downtown Tokyo and saw the Emperor's palace among other important buildings.Japan is a constitutional monarchy.

    .The dining is top rated and the visits to the Buddhist temple and Shinto temple was very interesting.Of course Chinatown in any city is very colourful and lively..i wish I could have had a longer time to spend there because I would take the two and a half day back packers trek to the summit of Mount Fugi..Maybe sometime in the future I will go back for another visit.

    Udaipur city in Rajasthan in North India is a historical place one likes to travel where monuments of forts, palaces, lakes, temples, beautiful nature, are importance sources of travel and understand the land and the people. The monuments are almost well maintained and people are friendly I felt.

    My husband and I are retired and we love to travel.Our recent trip was a six week road trip across America and back again..We visited family and friends on the East Coast and camped most nights..Some of the highlights were the free air show by the Blue Angels, the camp ground in Florida with an unfenced pond containing a 15 foot male alligator and 2 smaller female gators...the male did the gator water shake to impress the females.We visited points of interest like Niagara Falls and the Coral Castle.and Yellowstone where I finally saw 2 Grizzly bears and a Black bear with three cubs, a cougar, a flock of Dahl sheep and a herd of Moose along with Buffaloes, antelopes and Elk...One of the most fun of places to visit is the Big Texan on Route 66 in Amarillo...that is where eating the 4 pound steak in one hour competition is held daily..i finally got to visit New Orleans and see Key West...we had a great time at the Grateful dead Memorial Day party in New York but the best part of the trip was visiting family and friends...just to mention the saddest part of our trip was when we visited the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania...i wrote a haiku and posted it on the board that day..may humanity learn to live at peace someday..

    If you have seen The Sound of Music & loved it, then you must visit Salzburg, Austria. Mirabell Gardens is a very beautiful place and is featured in the song Do Re Mi. One can also take a Sound of Music tour to see the various locations featured in the movie.

    have an experience to a visit to Udaipur city in Rajasthan in North India which is a place of historical monuments, forts, lakes, palaces, temples, jain temples, and different cultural backgrounds and related monuments which I felt most important and nice to view. The Kambar fort which is the largest and spacious one is wonderful to a visitor and the manpower that built such a great fort in those days of poor communication facility is really amazing. Hundreds and thousands of people are visiting this fort far and near of the places including foreigners.Then Haldi ghati fort which is historical with so much legendary stories of war between the mighty mughal emperors and brave Ranas of Mewar. The legendary Haldi Ghati war is a part of History and moreover the story of Chetak the Royal Horse which saved his master's life in time. The lake palace and other different forts are also very interesting and to learn the history of India of the time. I loved the place and palances and tried to understand the history through them.

    It is a nice thing to see new places, people and understand the culture, living habits, people's movements, the business stalls, and hotels, cafeteria, and restaurant like avenues and different cuisines of that place which I am always likes to enjoy. Together with the most important part of my journey is to understand the historical backgrounds of the places that I visited and erstwhile rulers and transformation of the society, the affluence, as well as poverty, the affluent people and life styles, the poverty stricken communities and the reasons, strengthening the women power and its implications all are things to be known for a close observer of new places I think. The river systems, the water sources, the crime rates that disturbs the peace in the locality, the non governmental organisations working for the development and improvement of the places and people, also the attempts to make the folklore of the places in its originality for the future generation, also my concern when I travel to the new surroundings and people. The theaters of the new places, the temples, festivals, the different music instruments, as well as ornaments and its styles, the body languages of the people and their dress codes, all are much interested.
