Journey East

 An epic journey through exotic eastern lands via some favorite movie soundtracks and a few lesser-known tracks. 

We start our journey leaving home and saying Farewell At The Coast, following Rob The Physician towards Persia in search of knowledge and answers. We travel The Pilgrim Road hopping to find The King(dom of heaven) finally taking rest at The Imperial City at the center of The Great Middle East. Weary from our journey, we are lured by seductive Desert Mermaids into the Temple of De'Light. Having succumbed to Avaritia we slip into a deep sleep, dreaming of the great Ganges, lulled further into dreams by Pi's Lullaby on the First Night, First Day. We awake inspired by our visions, our Asian Destiny calls us further east, Before Time steals away our adventure. Our long journey may leave us Yearning For Peace but we must join the Hero, wary of the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and other unknown dangers as we travel the Silk Road. Luck is with us and we find Safe Passage, finally joining Katsumoto The Last Samurai as he finds A Small Measure of Peace (and perfect cherry blossoms)
