Hundreds of cars block every possible space around my local school here in the UK. It is like an important meeting of the UN is going to take place! Stressed out mum's (and dads in fewer numbers!) take their kids to the school door before rushing to work.
Well none of this is needed here, the mums will get their kids ready, they leave their houses and flats, meet up in two and threes and walk to the school together. Same on the way back. The only time the parent takes the children to the school is usually on the first day.

A fine comment on life in Britain these days! This is the way I travelled to school fifty odd years ago but nowadays parents all seem to take their children to school in enormous gas-guzzling 4x4 off-roaders (which have never been off-road), meantime blocking major routes and side roads.
A fine photograph of life in Albania with good composition, the road leading us nicely into the picture and the children with their bright coloured clothes standing out nicely against the almost monochrome background of the buildings.

A nice shot of the still relatively idyllic life in Albania. Also in Sweden some 50 odd years ago I walked or cycled to school, except for the very first day. In those days though pink wasn't the colour everyone (not even every girl) prefered.
