I'm Back!! (with lots of pics), Part II

And here's some highlights from Israel, Egypt and Sicily (part 2)!  As mentioned before, I think we all know it can be difficult to dress fashionably when traveling, especially when you have to do a lot of walking through ancient ruins and museums, in addition to riding camels and climbing pyramids, but I did the best I could.  :-)

Capernaum

I look like an Arab - an Egyptian man came up to me and wrapped my scarf like this

What amazing pictures!
I think you look incredibly fashionable in every picture, scarves are my absolute favorite traveling accessory, you did an amazing job with yours!

Thanks Andi...the funny thing is, I only use them when I travel. I can't ever figure out what to do with them when I'm at home. Makes no sense. ;-)
