I was at a community event supporting an International Fair this evening.  Scientists and engineers come from all around the world to fuel Google and all our Blogging hobbies.  So a multitude of countries was represented in Silicon Valley's melting pot.

If you think about the origins of fashion, it really began with beautiful national costumes.  Someday, I hope to be able to visit Rajasthan and all those gorgeous castles in India.  Perhaps, I'll get to finger those shimmering fabrics and intricate jewelry.  Meanwhile, I thought this little maharani dancing over here was exquisite.
