A collection of unique items that I’ve encountered from around the world.
At our Llandudno B&B in Wales we had selection of breakfast yogurts; the ones I’ve never had before included toffee, blackcurrant and gooseberry. At the Salt House, a craft beer mecca in Galway, the only food on offer was potato chips in unique Irish flavours: Dubliner Irish Cheese & Onion, Roast Beef & Irish Stout, Atlantic Sea Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar.
We picked a route around Copenhagen where we passed the Børsen, the oldest stock exchange in Denmark, with its unique twisted dragon steeple. This peacock ‘bird’ boat in Sendai was our fantastical ferry to the seaside village of Matsushima, Japan. I have never before seen a light in the shape of a fly, all part of the unique vision of Escher as part of his museum in Den Haag, Holland. (The museum was pretty unique too!) Meat in a display case, a rather unique way to sell meat in the mercadito in Marquelia, Mexico. There was an exhibition of photos in Siem Reap, and at times the venues were as interesting as the photos. These water-related photos were under pools in a courtyard, held down by stones while live fish swam above them (Cambodia).
There were wild elephants in Khao Yai National Park but we hadn’t seen one all day. Then, just as we neared the exit of the park we screeched to a stop. “Elephant,” cried the guides exultantly, and there it was! A huge bull elephant, ravaging the trees at the side of the road, as big as a bus. The pictures aren’t great – it was dark – but at times we were so close to him he completely filled the frame (Thailand).More of the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Unique.
