Great shots! I like the first one in particular. I don't care much for the tarantula though...

All transport by sea, eh? Imagine that if you're sea sick!

Hi JM:)

Lovely peaceful place unspoiled by modernization. The informal way in which children are being taught is something very rare to find in towns.

Your photos are fantastic. Many thanks for showing this beautiful place.

Have a nice day:)
Joseph
