On Sunday as I hopped in the car, I noticed that my husband had packed his laptop as well.
“Why are you bringing the laptop to church?” I asked
“I have to make a trade before noon and can’t find my phone.”

When I travel, I take photos and scrapbook them into reminders of my trips. Naturally I have pictures of things like the Parthenon, the Pyramids at Giza, Machu Picchu – the sites that attracted me in the first place. But I also take other kinds of photos and that is what this is about.
I told our leader in Greece that I have photographs of ancient drainage systems (AKA sewers and toilets) and wheel ruts in stone from several continents! I really do because for some reason they fill me with wonder. One day as we were driving along our tour guide called out “LUNCH!” and we looked up to see a herd of goats causing a traffic jam. Photo op! And hey – look at that whole dressed hog, hanging in a shop window – like totally naked! Pork chops anyone?
That was in Greece. In Oaxaca, Mexico I was startled by a hog’s head hanging in a booth in the market! Its eyes were open and it seemed to be smiling down at me. Hanging along a line adjacent to his head were his entrails. Eww! What do you do with that stuff?
Some of my stranger photos were taken from bus windows. Like in Egypt when we saw a huge bundle of grass moving along on two skinny legs. Actually there were two (we assume) little boys taking grass to their animals down the road. There is often gaily colored clothing hanging from a roof or over a balcony railing. Things like this deserve a place in my scrapbook and can invoke more memories than the sites I pay to see!
