A new name for 'The Lounge'

Postby Ben » Fri Apr 17, 2009 11:13 am

While at Salamanca Place in Hobart today, I came across this place...

Looks like a great alternative name for 'the lounge'!









EDIT: Sorry about the delay, I had some trouble getting the photo to 'stick'
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Vietnamese lotus tea is indeed very fragrant.

And in Chinese cuisine lotus root soup is a favourite. Very yummy and nourishing. :stirthepot:
