A Pilgrim on Her Way to the Golden Temple in Amritsar, 6 a.m.

A Pilgrim on Her Way to the Golden Temple in Amritsar, 6 a.m. (February 2012)

The best time to see the Golden Temple in Amritsar is at dawn.

Arrive in Amritsar the night before, stay at a hotel, wake up at 4 a.m., be prepared to walk across a dusty street barefoot, bring a head scarf and make sure you fasten it firmly.  Self’s flew off several times and people around her started to mutter.

Stay tuned.

Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris, July 2012

Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris, July 2012

It was a cloudy day.  It was the first week of July, 2012.  Self had just spent a month in Scotland, on a writing residency.  She went to Paris to fulfill a lifelong dream.  Her birthday was July 14, Bastille Day.  She didn’t get to stay until then, she went home a week early.  But at least she finally saw the City of Light with her own two eyes.  Yeeees!!!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
