A Photo a Week Challenge: Wood

Another challenge I simply can’t resist. I just love wood ~ their grains, their smell, their density ~ but most of all, I just love trees. I know it’s the cycle of nature, life and death, for all things living, but to see the speed of deforestation is indeed painful.

A Photo A Week Challenge: Public Transportation

There’s Public Transportation ….

Tokyo's Bullet Train

Shinkansen (新幹線) ~ The Bullet Train which goes at 200mph between Tokyo & Osaka

and there’s Public Transportation …

Thai Tuk-tuk or "Samlor"(3-wheeler) ~ Speed depends on road traffic & engine condition, I guess.

Oh! and I’ve also gotten on buses with wooden floors & vibrating seats ~ vigorous  massage chairs!  (Note: Upon alighting stand still for awhile, do not walk immediately or you will walk with quivering legs.)
