Ailsa, of the “Where’s my backpack” blog, has given us a travel challenge this week. The challenge is ‘Rhythm’, and some of you may know that I’m in Phuket Thailand on holiday at the moment. I have heard the rhythm of the beginning of the monsoon rains, most evenings, as well as the rhythm of the waves crashing onto the beach just across from our room. The rhythm of the wind in the palm trees lulls me to sleep at night. I’ve been looking out for street musicians here, but so far haven’t seen even one, so I decided to use photos taken in other places on my travels.
This one was taken in Rio, as we were sitting having lunch at an open restaurant just across from Copacabana Beach. Halfway through my meal, a band of merry minstrels appeared, and insisted that I come join them whilst they serenaded me.
Whilst in Venice last year, we were sitting at a street Pizza Cafe, when these three brothers stopped to sing to us. They weren’t very in tune, but it was nice all the same, and added to the romantic rhythm of that wonderful city.
One evening, whilst staying at a resort on the banks of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, we were entertained by these guys who performed some of their local music for us. It was a fascinating performance, and quite different from our Western style music.

it seems to be funny nevertheless
Well we couldn’t help having a giggle, but we did pay them well for their rendition. 😉
Spirit and enthusiasm make up for everything! Thanks for sharing.
This is very true, Naomi. Glad you enjoyed. 😉

Thanks, ailsa. I came up with a second post, after I found some rhythm here. 😉
Wonderful musical shots!
Thanks TRS. Glad you liked them. 😉

mm, rainy rhythmic pix would be good too – there’s always tomorrow morning 🙂
I’m hoping it won’t be raining in the morning, as we;re going out on a boat trip.
Thanks, Roly. I’ve got more, but it’s just finding them that’s too time consuming.
