Still me

Bits and bobs about my life in my lovely home, Thatchwick Cottage, Pretoria, South Africa.

During a search this morning on the net I noticed that Wikipedia is calling for photos of monuments.  Monuments tend to summon ideas of  huge buildings, men on horseback cast in bronza and mounted on a plinth, columns covered in names of the honorable dead. But a monument may be anything of enduring value to humanity like the bronzed shoes scattered on the banks of the
Danube as it flows through Budapest. Men's boots, women's high heels, children's shoes. In memory of the victims of the Iron Cross who tossed them into the river to drown during World War II.
