I didn't take these.
But I found them!
so, they're mine now, right?

Here's a little story with good visuals.

I got an internship here^
At the Golden Door in beautiful Escondido, CA.

It is entirely founded on tradition and has been up
and running for over 50 years now.

The property has a lot of traditional Japanese rituals and practices
in the programming and design.

In the lovely mountains there is hiking of all sorts to partake in.
Short trails, long trails, and lush greenery everywhere.
It's magical!

The above is the Labyrinth.
It's a walking meditation garden and has lovely wind-chimes.

Also, the nature around here it totally exotic.
Pomegranate trees, Avocado trees, and even Eucalyptus.

I eat here just like the guests do. :b hehe.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served like the above.
On a tray with tea & flowers in the morning!

The china is tiny, precious, and lovely.
Also, it is all perfectly portion controlled.
The food is all smaller than it appears in the photos.

Plus, I get to work with an absolute dream team!
Everyone here is so friendly and it has been such a fun
and easy transition to being a part of this place.

The fitness team (some gorgeous coworkers posted above)
is so knowledgeable and well composed!
It's just an incredible environment to be learning in.
I am so thankful for this.
