Posted by Picasa

This month's theme day is a city exchange. This is a nice break from showing just Tel Aviv. I've chosen to show Caesarea. Caesarea is an ancient city (completed in 12 BCE) built by the Romans and is about an hours drive from Tel Aviv. The above photos are of remains of the ancient Roman aqueduct.

Superb collage, Mandi!

I want to thank your visits to my blog recently. Sorry I wasn't able to reciprocate because I was overseas for a few days.

I only came home last night, too late to enrol for the Theme day, but I am participating anyway. Cheers!

Fabulous photographs of Roman ruins is nice to see. I just can't imagine what must have been in the minds of the people who labored on this project. Would you guess they could ever think about these times and you and I in touch across the world by computer? Wow.

My Theme Day portrait is of the "Peashooter" and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

You didn't just change cities, but you travelled in time too. A beautiful place that I loved visiting, last back in '98. Shalom!
