September: your photos



In this picture, my brothers and sister clad in traditional dress called as 'baju melayu' for male and 'baju kurung' for female and was taken during Eid-al-fitri celebration. This picture is captured at my mother's village where we go celebrate the Eid by visiting our relatives which is only once a year. In the picture, they found a few caterpillars and watching them since it is unique and rarely found in a busy city, where we currently lived now.

I send you a picture of Lithuanian true mushrooms.
It's very tipical for Lithuanians to go mushrooming in the fall, when you can find a lot of varies mushrooms in the forests. In September in small south town of Lithuania - Varena, which is known as "Capital of Mushrooms", the Mushroom Festival sets up.

Yours faithfully,

Aldona Paulauskiene, Lithuania
