Yes there was a birthday cake!  Actually, it was given to me by the Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen Restaurant in Mt. Hope, Ohio because I ate breakfast there on my birthday.  The candle is an amazing Flower whose petals open with candles on each petal.  It also plays a nice tune.

It is nice to share my birthday with “World Photography Day!  I’ll post this today since in Bangladesh it is already on the 19th, and I haven’t told WordPress that I am in the U.S.!!

Here I am enjoying a pretzel at the train station in Bern, Switzerland!

Also proud to be wearing the TTL polo shirt from our 5th “Bangladesh in Frames” photo exhibition!

I took the one photo on the route to the Rose Garden, and the other one from near the Rose Garden.  Both span The River Aare.
