Bonjour Bertrand,
C'est marrant parce que moi, quand je pense ΰ la Tanzanie, c'est plutτt le Kilimanjaro qui me vient ΰ l'esprit! :o)
Comme quoi c'est un pays trθs variι pouvant satisfaire les visiteurs aux attentes variιes. J'adore ces tranches de couleurs qui composent l'image. On dirait un arc-en-ciel gιant aux teintes pastelles.
Bon dimanche (t'es oω en ce moment, j'avoue que je n'arrive plus ΰ suivre!)

Hi jacques!
The Hindus consider vermilion a sacred colour. That is why you will find quite a few idols smeared in vermilion in temples and other places in India and Nepal. The stone lions in this picture look red due to the application of this substance.
