Modern Technology- only a dream


Rich, poor.....famous and not so famous, there are always plenty of smiles in areas like this on the river. It breaks my heart to know there are children in the world today who struggle to survive. But, this is life.......
Thrashing the grain from the stocks can be quite a challenge, especially on windy days. Notice the woman in the bottom photo is beating the rice stock with a stick. This goes on for hours a day. I loved the little girl's flip - flops! The next picture is a man standing beside a thrashing machine. How does he ever breath?

Those flip-flops are a hoot. Good photo!

These are lovely photos, Jann. I remember the first time I traveled to a third world country - in my early 20s, traveling alone, I wrote in my journal about all of the joy through physical hardship. It was a very big life lesson for me.

Great photos. We're going to try and get away, off the beaten path this summer, maybe the Greek Islands, I don't know, but for sure we'll avoid the tourist traps and look for the real people.

Your photos are a real dose of reality for all of us "millionaires" in the US.

It really does put things in perspective for those of us who have so much.

It is hard to imagine that life. Really makes one think~

As usual, Jann, your photos teem with life. And your message is just what we need today.

I have eaten the best food in places just like this one. Lacking all sort of modern day conveniences, gadgets, etc, they all had one thing in common. Hospitable people with access to the most important ingredients - super fresh produce!
