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.
My second photo shows a community of weavers in Peru. These wonderful people (mostly women) invited our group to spend time watching them work, and then to share lunch with them. 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.
