Weekly Photo Challenge: Walls (Painting in Cambodia)

A  submission to this week’s Photo Challenge – Wall.

One of the major experiences of my World Challenge Visit to Cambodia / Vietnam was our time spent at a Cambodian Orphanage. The task we needed to complete was to repaint the boys dormitory, We pent 5 days scrubbing, filling, sanding and painting the walls turning them from yellow to blue. It was a hard week’s work but worth it in the end.

Weekly Photo Challenge: (Hadrian’s) Wall

A late submission to this week’s Photo Challenge – Wall.  I suppose that next to the Great Wall of China and the Berlin Wall (neither of which I have been to), the next most famous wall is Hadrian’s Wall (to which I have thankfully been).This wall built by the Romans, in AD 122, across the Northern  Part of England from just north of Carlisle to Newcastle. It’s purpose was to control the trade in the region and to keep the  armies of the Picts, from north of the wall (Scotland), from invading Britain.These photos from my visit in August 2013 on a visit to Hadrian’s Wall at Housesteads a ruined fort.

An earlier visit to the wall way back in 1988.
