3 - Air-Con Bus

A woman is like a jar of ghee,
A man is like a hot charcoal.
So a wise man should not keep the two together.
The Hitopadesha


I’ve been to America
not South America
I’ve not been to South Africa
or Africa

Red beaded braided hair


Show us your ring
You mean like this?
bend over
Throwing the yarrow stalks
before Guanjin
