Como Bridge

boy2-1

Como Baths. This was taken the same day the man fell/ slipped or jumped from the Como train Bridge (not pictured) and badly hurt his face, head, and abdomen. I had left when the incident occurred but i have seen an image of the man, still in the water, awaiting for paramedics to remove him safely. He has people in the water holding him up, a rather disturbing sight….non the less, people will still climb and jump from that bridge. Some have become paraplegic, and being in the Georges there could be anything floating down stream, anyway lets hope we don’t see any fatalities here.

Did I say “a rushed holiday ?”

 1/80th second, from vehicle, just for fun

Actually so glad i took this drive through Lifou, Loyalty Islands, which is known for its avacado plantations. It really is a beautifully kept island. Driving through the island we were fortunate enough to see their chiefs Bure and so many gorgeous homes. The locals are very religious and take so much pride in adorning the cemeteries with beautiful flowers. More to come.
