weekly photo challenge : community

This week’s photo challenge made me think about people you are exposed to when travelling. My first photo shows a group of friends travelling in Turkey. We weren’t friends before the trip but we formed our own community as we travelled together in a foreign country. It was terrific getting to know each other as we shared experiences in another part of the world.

Potatoes were roasted in a fire pit and served with cheese. We contributed delicious bread from a nearby village. Joining their community, even for a few hours, made for a memorable day.lunch group in Peru

  1. Wonderful captures of communities. That bread is really something…The women in Peru are so sweet, I remember buying some things from women who never seemed to sell anything. They were left in the background by the others, but I walked out to them.
