I think that's actually a nonopus. Probably one of the signs of armageddon. Or maybe Ragnarok.It sure looks as though you're having fun (earthquakes excepted, of course)! I have no clue where you are. Italy?
Oh you are a clever fishy! What a great montage!
Not Italy, laurie, but a good guess! Actually, this church would have been a bit at odds with Rome...
Hmm. Definitely Orthodox. Looks Byzantine.I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Romania. This has so many of the elements seen in the Voronet Monastery.Am I close?
Close... close but no cigar. Wrong alphabet, for one thing...
Hmm... I believe you are in a monastery in Bulgaria. A friend travelled there recently and showed pictures afterward. Although there are probably similar frescoes in a lot of places, I remember seeing the black and white arches, which I thought were an odd contrast to the colorful imagery of the murals. I can't remember the name of the place, though...
Very good, Thinker!The monastery is Rila, and it is an amazing place.
Man, your readers are so clever! :D Well done, Thinker!
Sounds like you're having fun, DC - keep enjoying it, and please keep us updated!Regarding the monastery:The monks have gone modern at RilaAnd explain their renewal of zeal: “Ah,We consume the DivineNot as wafers and wineBut as nachos, washed down with tequila.”
Ah, I miss you. Let me know when the tides come in.
Thought of Judgement of each critter's worthFills your average fundy with mirth.But the catch, if God did,Is that He is a squid -And the beaked shall inherit the Earth!(Someone must have used this punchline before me, but I cannot for the life of me find any examples)
