Superb shot of your beautiful cactus.
Ranting against blogger again . . . your posts have not been coming up on my site, grrr.
As far as I know, India was invited to exhibit there and completely fell in love with your country and will definitely be going there again, wish I could too, I've always wanted to explore Portugal. Currently she is teaching in Scotland.

What a clever way to show the sunny weather. I suspect there will not be too many posts from Australia on that theme. Given that it is really cold here at the moment.
