These pigeon hotels are extremely popular in a lot of Parisian parks, since they offer an unlimited buffet of contraceptive food inside. The pigeons absolutely love it! (I suppose the great food consoles them for not having any children, just like a lot of people in Las Vegas.)
htmb - The story is, I was panning and shot the photo as I passed a plant in the garden. Looks like heavenly rays were shooting up to my ' Kitey' (his name) but it's just some leaves or branches I think of my Tree Fern.
Nycgirl -Yes, Kitey is our old friend...or his relatives, who come down every August from North Africa and stay, build nests, have chicks, bring the family to our house as it's the best restaurant in town, then buggar off again in about two-three weeks time.
I am waiting with baited breath for all your wonderful African holiday stories....!!
