NATURE/ Exotism

Nature always strikes me, especially when I am travelling in what we could call an “exotic place”.
Here are some pictures I took during my stay in Israel.

Let’s first have a walk in Ramat Hanadiv, a natural gem dedicated to the memory of Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Situated between Zikhron Ya’akov and Binyamina, this place is a must see for whoever enjoys the beauty of Nature and wants to know it better (don’t miss the fragrance garden).

An exploration of the charming Nahlaot’s neighbourhood in Jerusalem offers a diversity of flowers and plants that will please any visitor’s eyes.

Legong beauties

Legong is a refined dance form Bali characterized by intricate finger movements, complicated footwork, and expressive gestures and facial expressions. Legong probably originated in the 19th century as royal entertainment

Traditional performances of Legong dance and Ramayana can be seen in Ubud. I was fascinated by the intensity of the dancers’ face expressions, their gracefulness and the beauty of their costume.

Holy thai

Theravada or Hinayana Buddhism is the national religion of Thailand (faith of 95% of the population) but there is total religious freedom and both the king and the governement support all the religions.
Temples and representations of Buddha are ubiquitous in Thai society and represent a real delight for the eyes.
