Country roads.

I was determined not to cycle along any main road; it is just too boring. Luck was on my side, and right from the word go, I found a small road leading me through tiny villages where old men were leaning on sticks, watching their only cow. Others sat in the shade of trees, fanning themselves with their hats, while the women stood bent over, weeding the rice paddies. A wave of gratitude washed over me as I cycled past the ever-present ornate temples and ladies selling snacks along the way. To have the luxury of no destination and time on my hands is one of the greatest privileges I could ever wish for.
I stopped and bought a flower garland for 10 Thai Baht. “It’s for good luck,” they said. With my garland dangling from my handlebar bag, I set off again past humble homes with ornate birdcages hanging by the front door.
What a lovely shot! I loved your story too.

Your commentary is always so wonderful, as are your photographs. These cages are indeed ornate, as are the tiny Diamond Doves within.

Very ornate bird cages. Getting off the beaten track is always much more interesting.
