Carpe Diem #1562 Sacramento ...

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I had a nice weekend, cold and wet, but I enjoyed it very well. Tomorrow I will start at my new job at the VU Medical Center Amsterdam The Netherlands. I am excited and nervous, but I love this new challenge. I will start on the Hematology unit as an oncologynurse and hopefully this job will bring me joy as did my former job. We will see it in the upcoming months.

This month we are on our way again. We are writing Haiku Along The Pan American Highway and today we have arrived at Sacramento. Sacramento has a long history and in Old Sacramento Waterfront, you can experience that history. It's a 28-acre national registered landmark and state historic park, that preserves an 1870 riverside scene, complete with sailing vessels, paddle wheelers, cobblestone streets, boardwalks and many other historic elements. Old Sacramento Waterfront is home to numerous special events throughout the year, including the world-renowned Sacramento Jazz Jubilee which attracts more than 300,000 visitors each Memorial Day Weekend.

Old Sacramento Waterfront
Step into the historical background of Sacramento ... reliving the "ancient wild west" ... enjoy being part of that history.

Your task for today is to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese form of poetry inspired on the Wild West.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until December 16th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
