That Afternoon at the Mosque in Yoyogi

One of the most peaceful places I've been to.

Who knew there was a mosque in Tokyo?

My first time inside a mosque.

The design and colors were so stunning.
I wonder if all mosques are like this?

We just sat there
drinking in every detail.

The stained-glass windows were amazing.
I would love to see that up close.

Someone came to pray while we were in the prayer hall.

I didn't know what he was saying
or why he was doing what he was doing

but it was beautiful all the same.

Something about prayer, in any religion.

I sometimes feel like those that are able and willing to
give themselves over to a certain belief
are the strongest of them all.

That Weekend with the BFF

When your BFF comes to stay over for the weekend
you know it's going to go by fast!

It's been forever since I saw her
so we had a lot of catching up to do.

Not that we don't keep in touch.
We do.

It's just a thousand times better in person<3 p="">
