Great holmertz 2019-09-14 7:24

Hello Malgo,
So just for once you follow my advice to look through your old files where you have your hidden gems. This is a very nice photo, culturally interesting for the betel leaves and the lady's thanaka, and the general environment. She is well placed and the colours are good. At least WS #2 could also easily have been a main upload.
So you know what betel leaves look like and how they are used in India, but have you tried them? Of course not. But I have (and didn't like it) ;-) But of course I have to try everything (including eating dog and snake).
Best wishes,

Talking To holmertz: Never tried

Hi Gert, Thanks for your nice words.
Of course I haven't trried betel leaves. I have never tried even such ordinary things like cigarettes or vodka . As for food , I am not so curious and not brave. I haven't tried guinea pigs in Peru, ant pupae and larvae in Mexico or grilled scorpions or bats in Asia.
But I still have coca leaves from Peru.
Have a nice evening

Hi Malgo and Gert,

The sight of a mouth that opens takes away the enthusiasm to try the betel leaves.
PS: I tried khat in Yemen ... It only has the effect of eating raw vegetables in a very unhygienic country

Best wishes,
