Perfect coil of the waves. So pleasant! Sunrise by the Sea ...I wrote a poem when I had the opportunity to watch it right there on the beach just before it appeared in the sky! These ones are absolutely gorgeous!

A splendour of ancient times

This is a fairly long post about bamboo. I have only scratched the surface for information. It will play an even bigger role in the future for a sustainable eco friendly material. Perhaps one day we drive in Bamboo cars powered by water!

I feel honoured as an expat Filipino of your mentioned of the Las Pinas Bamboo Organ. I saw it in real while we roamed places when I was there. At that time, it was undergoing renovation, so we could not request to listen to the music played from the said organ.

Bamboo indeed has many uses. Infact, at one stage of our life being nomad due to the nature of my father's job, we lived in a Bamboo house. Everything made of bamboo from the pillars to the roof. The window, the floors, the frame, the walls, the kitchen stove, the kitchen sink, all bamboos. The bed, the chair, the table ... to the point that even the food was from bamboo (shoots).

Pity in those days, we didn't have camera. And for some reason, I don't know where our family albums are now. Sorry state...indeed!

As ever, I am delighting to your very interesting write.
