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

  2. 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.

  4. That bread looks terrific. I know that feeling of community that starts with just one thing in common and grows. It can be wonderful.

    1. Thanks. Isn’t it fabulous looking bread? It was hot out of the oven. We had another lunch where there was something similar with a topping on it so it was like a long skinny pizza. Both were delicious.
