what a wonderful image Louis... he will go far... since he has to go so far to get to school....petersmile
Louis: Not so far, maybe 2 -3 km, which is the same I had to do for my education, back then. But then, he can go far because of that, you are right ...
For some it's very long and lonely, I'm sure, Louis. But what a great image, with the cast shadow to keep him company.
Louis: The picture may bring up thoughts of 'lonely', but I am sure he has friends waiting to kick the ball at school, Ginnie.
Terrific shot, Louis - love how solitary it feels!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth

I sure hope the teachers excite his imagination and lust for information, Louis.
Louis: I happen to know, it is one of those schools, Ray.
It seems in developing countries Education is highly prized. Less so here I am sad to say
Louis: I believe it must be, because education is seen as the way out. Which it should be. It also has to do with values that you grow up with. I once (last year) saw a film of difficult teenagers being swopped between countries, to stay in another culture's home and attend their schools. The two English children sent to a Dutch family - that was probably the most glaring differences in values. I found it strange, considering that the cultures is divided by just a channel.
Very fine image Louis. One wonders where he is off to...school?
Louis: Yes, he is off to school, gutteridge.
This fabulous image brings great souvenirs back to my mind Louis! A likey for me.
Louis: Thank you Richard. I thought you would like it.

I wonder what he's thinking on his solitary trek?
A thought provoking shot.
Louis: Most likely looking forward to meet his friends at school and kick the ball with them, Pauline. But what will one know about what another one is thinking smile Thanks.
Dressed for cooler weather, I see. Have a good weekend, Louis.
Louis: This was about three months ago, nearing the end of autumn and in the mountains. Thank you Mary, I will.
A nice route to collect your thoughts
Louis: That's what I like about hiking, cornishmaid.
What a nice walking route... I wonder how far the walk is... Do you know him?
Louis: It is quite nice. His walk is between 2 and 3 kilometers and yes I know him as the son of a farm foreman.
Fine shot, Louis - how many miles to school?
Louis: Thanks Tom, it is about two miles.
A fine shot Louis, does he have to have a long walk all on his own?
Louis: Thanks Brian, it is about two miles and perfectly safe.

Road to education, what a fabulous title. It might be a long and lonesome road, to school or proper education. No schoolbus here.
I explained to Ginnie's grandson, who is with us for two weeks (from Atlanta) that kids her 'in the polder' sometimes have to ride their bikes for over an hour to get to school, even in winter and in rain etc....
FABULOUS picture and a likey to me.
Een goed weekend.
Louis: Dankje Astrid, ik vindt dat lief van je smile My wife grew up in the Koggenlandsche polder area. Primary school was a block away, but high school was about 20 kms in all kinds of weather, per bicycle.
this is inspirational stuff, Louis. i love how the grass fills the frame
Louis: Thank you Ayush. I love having the grass in a picture - it does fill well. At least I think so, too smile
