Have I shown you this portrait before ?

Welcome back, oh great traveler!

This is new to me and I like it. How come you entered his place?

I hope Luísa will allow some of her great pictures to be shared too.

what might be hanging from the ceiling?

Where is this?

Thank you Asher !
I am not that great traveler I would like to be. I do or rather, my wife and I have done done some travels around the World. We fill sorry that now it has become a bit more difficult and we hope to overcome this period. We will see...
This was once again shot in India where we have been after the virus started spreading and India had not closed ot's frontiers.
Where there, they closed the country and 4 or 5 days after our arrival there was no more flights and we would have been stuck in the middle of the pandemic and in India !
We went to see wild life and this was inside a house we asked to come in. We were well received. This guy was drunk but was kind.
Hanging from the ceiling is maize.
Now, another one also inside the house. Beautiful colours, just beautiful !
Ambient light ! No flash !

Glad you escaped. You were lucky to get out!

Amazing picture. Is she praying or shy?

The architecture is so well evolved, clean and purpose driven. Unlike our “Gagenau”, copper coil glass covered, induction cooktop, hers didn’t fail 11 times in the past 2.5 years and leave her with no cooking capability! Also, doubtless, her cooking is sublime.

Luisa might not be used to such a low cooking level, but would adapt and cook up a storm! If we grew enough replacement trees, this would be a “green” environmentally neutral architecture.

Why no chimney?

Antonio, what a great scene, very rural!

So they drive them from behind too. Looks like at least a 3 man job!

It appears that they deliver several cows to a home on the left for them to milk! A woman seems to have a milk urn to fill!

Reminds me of my teenage years. I was on a farm in the summer and had to call the cows in for Ming at 5:00 am.

I called, “Come, come, come come!” And they followed me to the milking barn!

Those ladies were so full they really needed high heels to keep their udders off the ground, LOL!

It was late afternoon as you can see and the cows were coming back home.
That's all I know...
Notice the road made of concrete. We could't go further on because they had just finished the job and cars, animals and people had to wait until the concrete dries overnight
