This week the country was Tibet. Such a struggling country- much political unrest but yet a country of such Colorfulness- Religion is so important to the country, many beautiful monasteries and monks that wear such plain but colorful outfits-the religious ceremonies are also bright. Many people hang colorful flags for spiritual reasons around shrines and up in the mountains. The Himalaya mountains are so amazing and a source of tourist income Now lets get to my card.

This is textured with glass bead gel but can not tell it on this view.
Underneath the gel medium was colored with colored pencils.
" My Dearest Melite,
I'm on my way home. I stopped in Tibet to attend
to some work related projects.
This country is so colorful, with all the flags flying, native costumes,
and the Monks in their colorful garb.
The Monasteries and Himalaya Mountains are so striking!
As beautiful as they are I sense turmoil from the political unrest...
No updates from my Detectives.
Love You & Miss You!!
