I’ve been obsessed with foreign places for the last few months.
Oh hell, for the last few years!
Ok, for most of my life.
There, truth at last, satisfied?
I, a small-town born, Midwest farm-raised, mostly sheltered all my life woman, am intrigued, and absolutely fascinated, with far-away places.
And, I’ve found a way to sate some of this yearning for travel through the wonders of… duh du du Dah! NETFLIX!
“China Revealed”. “Miss Granny”. “Empresses in the Palace”. Visions of cherry blossoms, silk kimono, and Buddhist temples, right in my living room.
“Queen” was the flavor and flair of this evening. Instead of China or Japan, tonight I chose India as my entertainment meal. Sort of a Hindi “Eat, Pray, Love”, without Julia Roberts, but with some smashing music and subtitles. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something uplifting, and don’t mind reading while you watch the action.
Who knows what’s up next for me, where I’ll be when next I sit down to spend some time with far-off strangers?
Actually travelling is not an option for me at this point in life…
So, I salute you from amidst these United Colors of Netflix.
I’ll be watching!
