was the 1st time i realized peacocks could fly.
college exams were over, and it felt like hollidays. i could smell it in the air.
he had returned from rome.
i fell in love with parts of my hometown i had never seen before.
life was beautiful.

  2. hello :) thank you for stopping by my blog. I have run into yours a few weeks ago and thought it was really worth following.

    peacocks are beautiful, aren't they? my grandpa used to keep a few peacocks in his garden a long time ago :)

  5. thank you all!
    peacocks do fly. as i was taking these photos, i heard another peacock, but couldn't see him anywhere. i looked around and everyone sitting at the tables was looking up, at the trees, pointing. and there he was. a male peacock sitting in the tree. soon after that i saw a friend of his taking off from the ground to join him. and then i learned: peacocks do fly.
