Photographer's Note

Also located at the highest point of the Akha village I've been showing lately, there's two huge swings that are very scenic and imposing, since they are seen from everywhere.
These structures are used for special ceremonies, but the only use I saw during the 24h I spent there, was by the children. Early in the morning and late afternoon they practiced for hours, trying to reach the top, using only the arms, which was pretty impressive. Only the older ones were strong enough to make it to the top, but all of them tried the best they could. I guess that this is their open air gymnasium :)

In WS1 and WS2 there are complementar images of the two swings against the colors of the sunset.

This is my last post for a while, since the day after tomorrow, I'm going for a week to the center of Portugal.
