Day 181

IDA, OUR FRIEND ENJOYING OUR photo book.  She had invited us over for supper along with her mother, and Carol, another friend.  It was a fun evening of getting caught up on recent events in our lives, reminiscing about the good times we had together in years past, and of course a good cup of coffee.

Day 180

BEAUTIFUL AMISH COUNTRY HOME near Mt. Hope, Ohio, U.S.A.  We take a 1 hr. early morning walk every day giving many opportunities to get photos of this beautiful countryside.  I haven’t seen any rice fields yet! 🙂

We had a nice meal and evening with Austin’s in Canton last evening.  The grandsons were so glad to see us.

Day 179

BIRDS OF OHIO, U.S.A.  These are some of the birds I see on our morning walks through the back roads of Holmes, Co.  Birdwatchers please send me any corrections needed to the identification of these birds! Thanks

SPARROW

BABY ROBIN?

REUNION WITH OUR GOOD FRIEND Carol Hochstetler

Not a good day for the U.S. soccer team as they lost in overtime to Ghana.  Maybe in 2014?

Day 176

NICE FLOWER ARRANGEMENT behind the house where we are staying in Ohio, U.S.A.

Day 175

MOM AND I REUNITED AFTER three years. She arrived on the bus at Noon today!

Day 174

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE U.S.A. football team on their 1-0 victory over Algeria today to go into the final 16 of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  

I’ve got a serious case of jet lag.  I did venture outside after the rain quit this afternoon to take this photo of some scenery behind the home we are staying at in Ohio, U.S.A.  For several months I may post many photos of America for my many Bengali friends who wish they could visit the U.S.A. 

Day 173

AFTER 39 HOURS OF FLYING (KL-Malaysia/Taipei-Taiwan/Los Angeles/Columbus) we were greeted by our friends Craig and Rosanna Mullet and Jessica Yoder.  Here is a shot with Alice, Rosanna, and Jessica.

ALICE ENJOYING A CUP OF COFFEE AT the Old Town Coffee shop in the KL airport in Malaysia.

I HAD A NICE BREAKFAST with my friend, Charles at this hotel (restaurant). Alice and I headed for the Dhaka airport at 10 pm, for our 1:20 flight with Malaysia Airlines.

Day 170

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SPECIAL WIFE whose birthday is today!  I met her on September 18 in the afternoon and have had so many special times together since then!  Sorry, sweetheart, it’s 9 pm and the power is off so I couldn’t find a good photo of you on this laptop, so I used one of an Argentina flag waving high over a street in Lalmatia, Dhaka, Bangladesh.  This city is wild with 2010 World Cup fever!  Even more so than the World Series or the NBA finals in the U.S.A.  Well today was filled with more good-byes.  As I left the football field I had tears.  One fellow told me it is ok,  you will return!
