I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

The Back View of the Taj

There is a wonderful view of the Taj from the backside. This is across the Yamuna River. Our wonderful tuk tuk driver took us there both at sunset and sunrise hoping to get a wonderful view. Unfortunately it was overcast and a bit rainy both times.
There are actually two vantage points. One is a garden area with a fee and the other is a free area which is actually more interesting. In the daytime there are photographers there for photo taking and a camel and other animals for tourists to ride on. And usually a few goats. People gather greens for their animals.

There was a village of sorts nearby. With very poor houses...mostly tents and cardboard type affairs actually.
Many of the "houses" looked like this and worse.
