siesta

wow! the day was hot and these caught my attention. a tricycle parked on a shade on one side of the road with the driver and two students sleeping at noon time. this is siesta at its best.

Bonjour,
Cette photo est attendrissante.
Ce serait super si on pouvait écouter de la musique philippine sur votre blog. Musique traditionnelle ou actuelle........
Merci

Bonjour
Bientôt en France dans les salles de cinéma va sortir le film de Brillante Mendoza "John John". Film qui a bouleversé le jury du festival de Cannes. L'avez-vous vu ?

when you're tired...you have to rest!
It's a priceless image when i think of it. I am taking the siesta for granted since i've been out of the country for a very long time. It's good to be reminded what we've missed.

Oh, this photo makes me smile. :) Makes you wonder how some rich people with the softest beds in their air-conditioned rooms need sleeping pills to cure their insomnia. :)

Oh, I love siesta time. :) The Italians and Spaniards swear by it and that they're more productive (and artistic too) during the rest of the day.

Haydee, thanks.

Hi Toe, the Spaniards actually introudced siesta to the Filipinos.

How do they sleep on their motorbikes. The asawa's brother does this and I can't imagine for a moment being able to sl;eep with the metal as a pillow.
Pinoys are a tough breed :-)
