Working with her was so much joy.

I believe it doesn't have to apply only to the young. I consider everyone of Age and rank talented in unique ways.
Kemetic Yoga is the ancient Egyptian system of Yoga enlightenment based upon the practices of physical movements combined with controlled deep breathing and meditation. The modern version of this ancient system was developed from primary research conducted by Dr. Asar Hapi and Master Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrene) of Chicago during the 1970s.
Kemetic Yoga is a healing and regenerative Yoga system that is characterized by a series of geometrically progressive postures that creates alignment of the spinal column and corrects defects in the skeletal muscular system in order to relieve stress, increase blood circulation, nutrient and oxygen supply to vital body systems, and to allow internal life force energy and cerebral spinal fluid to flow more efficiently and abundantly throughout the entire body.

Boy O' Boy,
For Some reason I Have always told myself that I would not do Party Imaging. So I am thinking to myself now like, and it is most definitely not the Music. In this session I have snapped well over Five Hundred images. Analyzing them during the editing process I told myself "these all look the same." So out of the Five Hundred these Twenty Two images turned out to be my favorite. Instead of the dancing all over the place, how about showing the smiles of everything there. I'm telling you Mr/Ms/Mrs/Miss reader. Smiles make the World go round.
These Images were Taken By me Whilst On Holiday during the year in which I call; The Almost Great flooding of Thailand Everywhere. There was heavy Rain and flooding in the majority of Ayutthaya, Chaing Mai and Other Regions during this year. I had so Much Faith in Going and the whole trip was an success. The Flooding really wasn't that Bad. All during my stay, the water from the northern regions was making its way down south. The Streets were dry, hot-n-Muggy in the busy city, but I assure you that the Citizens were most definitely Prepared; Sand bags were Mounted everywhere. These are just the Simple Moments That I have Caught Whilst Roaming the Streets of this Beautiful City. The Exit and Entry Requirements are Very Easy, Stand in line, Present your Passport, Smile and Change some Currency. All I have to say is Look for the Big Purple Bank I swear you will not miss it ;)
P.S. The Real true Respect of the People here is to just Simply Smile back. You will be Surprised how far a Smile will get you in the Land of the Thai's. some temples and Monuments require for the visitor to Dress Presentable. Wearing Shorts for example " The Grand Palace" For example is not permitted. That day I had to run up to my room and change from shorts to Pants.
The Almighty Hong Kong. Famous for the Kung Fu Movies. This City Reminds me of Any China Town in the US. only expect it is the real deal on a massive scale, Think NY and LA all in one. It is Extremely easy to get around, and I give it a PLUS due to the fact there is a bus stop right on the side of the hotel accommodations. The Hotel my body rested in whilst on holiday in this region is called L'hotel Island South. This is a fairly new hotel and the service is great. Staffing greets you with a warm welcoming smile and is available 24/7. The Famous Jumbo Kingdom restaurant located not to far away, in fact you can walk if you are willing to go the distance of 25 minutes or less.
I just love this city, from the Giant Buddha at the Po Lin Monastery to the 10,000 Buddha Monastery in which I did not get to visit at the time, I say it is most definitely worth a Visit at least Once or Many times in your lifetime.
This was one of my Favorite Trips Of All and I would like to Visit again once the Country is in Total rest. During my Limited Stay in the Country made me Realize how easy most american's have it in life without even realizing it. Never before have I set my foot on a Piece of land that one would only hear about in the story books and movies. Never before Have I witnessed such great Detail in each monument with sacred inscriptions mounted on the pillars that weighed tons. It makes me wonder how they were really built.
P.S. One Word of Advice. If you are being bombarded by the sales Hustlers out in the country. I was taught simply to just say thank you. If you say, " No, Not Interested" They will barter any price given towards you Down. So now we all know that Thank You means No and I'm not Interested means Yes/Maybe.
