Saturday, May 21: Jubilant is an adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant. So says the Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilant, challenging us to “end this week on a high note, with images that say jubilant.”
Here are some jubilant moments from my life:
In Hanok Village, Jeonju, South Korea, some jubilant musicians inspired all the English teachers to join in with the festivities.
As we took a day-long drive down the King’s Highway in Jordan, my Japanese fellow traveler Minako and I felt jubilant at different spots along the drive. Me at the Wadi Mujib Nature Reserve and Minako at Karak Castle in Jordan.
The traditional dancers in Siem Reap, Cambodia showed a more subdued kind of jubilation.
I celebrated my 57th birthday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at Yod Abyssinia Restaurant, probably the most jubilant celebration I’ve ever had.
And finally, on my month-long trip through Spain and Portugal, I was inspired by the jubilant flamenco dancers at Jardines de Zoraya in Granada, Spain.
