  3. I love the top collage, the walking holding hands and the beautiful horse. Pinocchio is so cool, did a Swedish man write the story?

  15. Hello, Dawn Treader
    I love the photos where people are washing cloths by their hands. It must have been hard work, but there must have been more enjoyable communication with their neighbors while washing in olden days. Interesting washboard! I appreciate electric machines which give me more free time.
    Best wishes,

  16. Love the pinocchio sculpture! Thinking that using lye soap with bare hands must have been rough!
