Burana Tower, Kyrgyzstan. The your is all that remains of the ancient city of Balasaghun, once considered to be the centre of the world in Turkic cultures. In the foreground are balbals, ancient Turkic gravestones, and on the right is the mound of the old city.

#Throwback to Portugal two years ago, sourcing the limestone for our Bel Air project. The limestone we used was the same you see on this church! c.1386 #lmidinc

I don’t want you to think that I went to Paso Robles only to do tastings at the wineries. 😉 So let me tell you that I did drive out to Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA. It’s well worth the $25 fee for the Grand Rooms tour, and it’s so breathtaking to see the many historical artifacts that adorn the main building or the Casa Grande. For 28 years, William Randolph Hearst collaborated on this elaborate project with architect Julia Morgan, the brilliant UC Berkeley engineering grad, first woman to be accepted at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and the first woman to ever hold an architect’s license in CA. Many historical art treasures and antiquities are displayed throughout the rooms of the main building, as well as outside in the well-manicured and impressive gardens. I was so overcome with the grandeur and the opulence of the Hearst Estate. #hearstestate #artandantiquities #sightseeingincalifornia #williamrandolphhurst #juliamorgan #historicalarchitecture #hearstcastle #californiahistory

The Library of Congress holds a remarkable amount of knowledge. But the building...is a piece of art. Come and see for yourself. #justpackyourbag

if you look very carefully, you’ll see the hill of three crosses 🙃
