Travel Photo of the Day (August 15)

Any guesses as to what's in this picture?

Can you tell me what those green things are?

    Moldy bark? I wouldn’t make tea of them ;).

  2. They are the same green foliage at the bottom left of the frame growing on the bones of, I assume, the products of an open grave.

  3. Colline says:

    No clue. Bark that has been greened with lichen? (Wild guess here 🙂 )

  4. cindy knoke says:

    At first they looked like bones, but I guess they are bark husks???

  5. Ok, I think you should tell us where this was taken before we try to guess :).

  6. pattisj says:

    No. Can you tell us?

  7. Oh my… the Incredible Hulk has exploded!

  8. Beth Ann says:

    I had no idea but then I cheated and read the comments. I would not have guessed bones. But now that I look closer it is pretty clear that is what they are. Don’t sign me up to be a detective …..I flunk.

  9. I would have never thought bones. First thing that popped in my mind was the outer covering of softballs or a volleyball. I have no idea why I thought that.. 😯

  10. aFrankAngle says:

    Without looking at comments above, sure look like bones.

  11. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Yes, its pretty clear but did they say how old they are?

    • TBM says:

      I need to do some more research for you, Gilly. So far every site I’ve visited has said ancient. That’s not very clear. Will look more and let you know.

  12. Vishy says:

    Interesting picture, TBM. On close examination it does look like bones. I liked that ladyofthecakes said 🙂

  13. I only know they are bones from having read the other comments. People make tea from the bones? Did I read that correctly? I think I’ll stick with my Earl Grey, thank you very much. (Unless of course you tell me that tea is from the bones of a man named Earl Grey!)

    • TBM says:

      I’m not sure about the tea bit. I don’t remember the guide saying that. And Earl Grey is my fave so I’m going to block out that bit about the bones. Surely there wouldn’t be any left by now.

  14. Jo Bryant says:

    I am having a pat on the back moment here…wait…I want to enjoy it
    I did not scroll down until I made my guess…and I was right…bones

  15. Lynda says:

    I saw the photo and instantly thought bones… skull caps and femurs would be my guess. Your comments confirmed this. So are they really just laying around, or are they in a sanctuary or some sort?

    • TBM says:

      This is a site for ancient burials. You have to hike up to see them but they are kinda laying around as well. If I wasn’t with a guide I wouldn’t have known what or why they are there.

  16. Yew! I thought they were fresh coconut remains before I read the comments! Quite interesting though, maybe write a few lines about this place one day?

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
