This photo was taken on a rainy day on Kamijima, the northern part of Tsushima, a Japanese island situated in the Korea Strait between the Japanese mainland and the Korean Peninsula. Should you ever visit Tsushima, make sure to check out this impressive website created by a former resident.
Speaking of marigold: I still haven’t seen as much as the trailer for “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” as I worry it’ll take away from the magnificence of the original. If anyone has seen it, please leave a comment below and tell me what you thought about it (without spoilers, please).
