White on Black

The Diva's

Weekly Challenge #338: White on Black!

Well, well, well, I'm back after an adventure with Paul to Nepal and India. We started our trip in Kathmandu and joined the tour group organisd by Intrepid Travel. In 15 days we made special friendships and incredible memories of places I feel so fortunate to experience like the Taj Mahal, flying over The Himalayas and camping on The Ganges. Sometimes it was quite overwhelming especially walking through the cremation area in Varanasi, seeing the chaos of traffic, rubbish and poverty in Delhi. Amongst it all I have admired the Indian women who walk serenely and calmly wearing gorgeous colourful saris. 'Incredible India'.

My small Zentangle kit actually stayed in my bag the whole trip which is unusual for me and it's taken me a week to settle back into tangling and catching up with Mosaic and The Diva's challenges. I enjoyed watching Rick and Maria's tangleation on Mosaic with the tangle well (which they named well well well) so I've used it in the challenge for this week.







Now for the holiday snaps!!

  4. What a marvellous trip you must have had. Not sure I could have coped with it all. Your tangling was worth the wait, I feel, with such lovely twisty tangly patterns. Gorgeous.
