|The 100 Years Old Mango|
Apart from the absolute serenity of this charming little village, there are two local icons which have attracted my attention.
|Some smashed sculptures beside the river|
The second attraction has been less fortunate. Lining the banks of the river are a number of stone-carvings of animals and other figures, including a mermaid. Damaged by floodwaters, the carvings are a shadow of their beautiful past. In their heyday, these decorations must have been a source of pride and a focal point for the citizens.
The river itself is lined with mangrove trees... One of these days I would love to fish these rather peaceful waters. Catch or no catch, this would be a rewarding experience. Camera at the ready, I am sure that I would capture some splendid shots of the local wildlife.
