Great kasianowak 2021-12-07 3:37

Hi Gert
Magnificent architecture. Thanks for the link to an earlier shot, it's interesting to see the tower from different sides.
The street life around the gopalam is equally important in the image, especially the man and his merchandise in the foreground. His presence links the photo to that in WS - a seller of an eclectic mixture of flowers and fruit (are those round hairy things coconuts?).
Best wishes
Kasia
PS. And we are being told that mass tourist is the thing of the 21st century...

Default To kasianowak: coconuts

Hello Kasia,
Thank you so much for today's critiques. Yes, as far as I can see they are coconuts.
Paul has posted a good photo of the famous bull. It looked different at my visit, much darker (dirtier) and surrounded by scaffolding. I didn't take any photos...
Have a nice week,
Gert

Indeed, I've just checked and found no photos of the bull in your gallery! :-O
As for the coconuts, I thought that's what they were because... they look like coconuts. :-D However, they are bigger than the coconuts I saw on sale in e.g. Costa Rica. They are also different from the coconuts I saw on sale in the market in Sulawesi - those were covered with a thick skin so looked much smoother, lighter and of course bigger.

Those you saw on Sulawesi must have been fresh (containing "milk"), while these are peeled and dried (and the liquid has congealed into copra). The smaller ones in Costa Rica were probably just another kind of coconuts. Most fruits seem to have dozens of varieties.

Thank you Gert. I didn't know that about fresh coconuts!
