The CuriousPages Sketchbook

Stepping back in time

From our balcony, we could see many fields devoted to agriculture. What’s striking though, is that all the farmers were still using animals to plough their land.

 

This situation makes all the more striking the gap between the Philippine families who are living at the lower end of the economical scale and those who can afford to shop in the supermarkets that farming families such as the above would never think of even setting foot in, so far out of their reach would be even the most basic essentials, such as a loaf of bread or a packet of rice.
