For Ailsa’s travel challenge this week, it’s play… I have shots of people playing musical instruments, children with toy trains, grown men playing Boules, etc etc. but there were two images from my travels that fitted this challenge best of all.
When I was a child, mumble, mumble, treble mumble years ago, we used to climb trees, play in the fields, hopscotch in the road, but most of all, we would improvise. We had an ancient tent which did duty as a hospital, a school, a shop, you name it. So, I was looking for something like that.
In Romania one evening we came across some kids playing something like hopscotch in the road, and in Cuba a couple of boys were playing on planks roughly nailed together, with castors underneath, which they used as makeshift Go Karts….Health and Safety would have had a field day!
