Photos and news from Encarnación (Paraguay) and surrounding places.
Being a city boy for my adult life in a fairly large American city, I am rather ignorant to some of your ways. So forgive me if I ask a semingly studpid question. Who picks up the "road apples" the horses surely must leave on the street? Or are they left to mother nature to dispose of?
Hey, this is a great one! Do those things have parking brakes?
To John:here is the answer to your question about "road apples":http://encarnacionfoto.blogspot.com/2005/04/terminal-de-mnibus-bus-station.html(if mother nature doesn't dispose them first) :)TO GN: if the parking brake doesn't work, no problem: the horses do swim and the carriages, being of wood, float! :)
Really great to see a place where the past and present co-exist. The horse and carts seems out of place in the urban setting, but wouldn't a fancy car look out of place in a rural setting?
wow i can't believe it, the subject of this photo does not seem to be a sunset or the ocean!! :) i love your ocean pics, and this is a nice departure. lots of interesting things going on in this shot and nice bright colors.
Une prise de vue très dynamique! Quel bel angle!
In Trinidad the carts would be towed by an ox or bison, I don't think the poorer farmers could have afforded horses. Don't see them often any more but I'm sure they're still some in the rural areas. When I was a kid going to school, sometimes a long line of traffic would form behind a farmer driving his cart along the road!
