ABC Wednesday--F is for

Back with my travel ABCs, F is for


These huge fruits are called jackfruit. There were many exotic fruits which were the norm when I was visiting India. Another that I recall was mangosteen.

There were also more familiar fruits. On a trip to the city, we picked up a large box of mangoes and took them back to the boys at Boys Village. You would have thought we had brought them the world. The younger ones danced about the courtyard with their mangoes, brought the over to us and shouted with delight, "Look, a mango!" Flowers

Flowers were bright and everywhere. Shops in the village sold garlands, which were given in welcome and in celebration.


My favorite forest photo is this one from Siberia. This forest is the setting for the Akademgorodok--University District-- where we were staying with friends of our son.This pathway winds through the forest there, connecting the eleven large apartment buildings and the buildings of the university.
In India, we passed through this eucalyptus forest on our way to the tiger preserve where I saw last week's elephants.
