About Not the best quality, but I just wanted to show you how this works, taken from my car, so not very sharp at all:))

This was quite common to see, but these looked so cute and behaved up there, me being scared what would happen...

Enjoy your lovely Sunday, hope you can relax,
xxJen

Navond Alain,
Komt daar inderdaad veel voor, maar tegen pasen
is het altijd erger, aangezien er dan alleen vlees
gegeten wordt...
Is door het autoraam genomen en dus ook bewegend, was allang blij dat we konden passeren..dank voor je comment! Fijne avond, Jen

Hey Jen,
dagdagelijks ginds maar voor ons natuurlijk exotisch....levende bagage :)
Kwaliteit is wat minder, zoals je zelf aanhaalt, maar ja het kan niet alle dagen feest zijn hé!
Vriendelijke grtz,

Alain

Excellent capture Jen, you just made me smile after a long and tiring family day Sunday... :) I see nothing wrong with this shot as what you say in your about.. the pastels are great and you have a very good white. Well seen.. it doesn't have to be super sharp, I clearly see three goats there..
very interesting shot!
well done!!
regards..

Thank you so much dear Ercole, the colours are
never clear there, I think its the dust and sand
of the desert, the heat dries all and dust
covers the green, just the rats which were black,
you could see clear passing the roads all the
time..brrr;)) Ciao dear Ercole, enjoy your afternoon!

Right that the bus wasn't filled up like normally, but inside it was.....it was hanging
sideways as you can see and kept on driving in
the middle, couldnt pass for some time:))
I think they feel what will happen after all,
which I did too, being scared they would stand up
and fall.....I am a weaky about that:))
Enjoy your nice and warm evening John...missing
that here!! xxJen

Good question dear Srna, I would love to write a book, but it has to be quiet and peaceful in my mind first:)
But at the other hand, if I wait too long I might forget all the stories and memories, no grandchildren yet to share..lolll
Big hug and kisss, Jenxx

Je kunt altijd proberen zwart te rijden, lukt in
A'dam toch nog wel met de tram;)) Maar met deze
geitjes liep het slecht af, het was Pasen..;(
Er was niks anders dan beesten onderweg, om
misselijk van te worden, omdat je weet wat er
gaat gebeuren....kan ik tenminste niet tegen...
Hoop dat je een beetje genoten hebt van de zon,
hier het gras maar eens gemaaid;)
Fijne avond nog, Jen

and have a coffee, watching people come by, with your camera of course;)))Big hugsss, Jen

Great you're amused AJ, I wasnt really seeing
this:) Just afraid they would stand up just in
front and fall over, but of course it didnt
happen!
True, nothing to see throught the back window, all covered up, I saw some very bad accidents last time in Africa, but thats not very unusual,
this road was even very good for some km's,
mostly just gravel and wash boards, so I'm
shuffled for life now:))

An amusing scene! I assume they are tethered in some. Anyway, they don't look at all bothered about being up there.

I also like the details on the rear window - the heating element and wiper, to help the driver see out (if only it hadn't been given a paintjob and covered by curtains!)
