I have seen a lot of interesting things during my trips to the developing world. For example...
A severed donkey head hanging from a store front.
5 horses INSIDE a house.
A chicken strolling through the bakery.
This does not include the things I have seen on the back of a motorcycle, like:
A family of 8.
A washing machine.
A kitchen table.
This month, the Compassion Blogger's team is putting on a scavenger hunt of third-world finds. Here's the list! Some of them I have photos of already, and some I'm going to have to find. Have fun looking! And hey...enter the contest yourself! They are giving away some cool prizes including books, t-shirts, and a $25 gift for your sponsored child! Check out the rules at http://blog.compassion.com/its-time-for-a-photo-scavenger-hunt/
