My friend Amritas' website is waaay above my level. Both my husband and I have said that if anyone thinks we're smart, they should meet this guy. And it is so flattering that such an intelligent man reads my dopey little blog.

Amritas honors my blogoversary with a Tangut of my name. I think he's my longest-running blog friend.

1 I'm blocked from posting a link to a photo gallery of the lost Tangut city. The photos can be found by Googling "Mongol ghost city dehydrated and sacked by Ming armies". "Mongol" is misleading; the city was conquered by the Mongols, but it was the Tangut in the city who stocked the secret library around the end of the 14th century.
