  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

The pictures are fabulous! Why was the girl carrying two rats do you think? I have been thinking concentrically due to all the effort I have made in digging out a fire pit and was fascinated in those two round, stone containers with grass growing on the top. Do you know why they were built? They can't be too old; maybe a hundred yrs. or so. Instead of jersey barriers in front of our public buildings we should be thinking more like that, don't you think? Also interesting was the planning room at what I take is City Hall or some such entity. Fascinating! The future has arrived. I wish Buckminster Fuller were still alive so we could get his take on Shangai and the Peoples Republic in general. Talk to you later. M

Okay, so I'd like that second pic in a frame, please! Really cool!

Beautiful!

I've been soo busy, I haven't had a chance to spend much time seeing your trip. It looked amazing! I had never had much of an interest in Asia beyond Israel. Your photos have changed my mind!
