This inviting spot at San Diego’s Safari Park is located in the World Gardens section of the zoo. It’s far away from the crowds and tourist monkeys scampering all over the more popular attractions and Kongo likes to sit on a little bench under a big pine tree there and listen to the birds. He thinks this is a good image to add to Ailsa’s “Inviting” travel theme this week. Advertisements
This week Ailsa theme challenges us with travel merchandise and Kongo immediately thought of all the junk, uh…I mean of course souvenirs hand crafted by indigenous artisans in local villages high in the Andes…that he came across during a recent trip to Peru and Machu Pichu. The markets were teeming with all kinds of stuff like the cloth and dolls above and the bull below which is a symbol of fertility in the Andes mountains.
Street light poles and buildings SHINE in a setting sun along the Hudson River walk in Battery Park City in New York. See more SHINE images at Ailsa’s Travel Theme.
Some of Kongo’s favorite cities. See more cities at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack.
Metal and Harleys. They go together well, just like this couple out for a Friday evening spin around the square in Santa Fe, NM. See more metal themes at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack Blog.
This week’s travel theme from Ailsa is BLOSSOMS so I’ve included a selection of flowering blooms from Kongo’s recent trip to Peru and Ecuador. Above, a flowering tree in the Galapagos Islands.
Ailsa’s Theme this week is GLOW. Above is the fountain at Balboa Park in San Diego which seems to glow in the late afternoon sun. More Glow pictures below:
