More graffiti spotted on our geocaching treks. This one was on a lonely tree by the edge of the water. I wonder what was going through the mind of the person who wrote this. It sounds like a declaration, not perhaps of indepedence, but of dependence. Perhaps I'm reading too much into this, but there seems to be a note of desparation here - it's the exclamation mark that makes me wonder ...
I also wonder about the state of mind of these people, who carved their names into a bamboo tree. Making your mark on the world is one thing, but carving up a tree seems rather a harsh way to do it. These were all over a bamboo grove: the photo above is spliced from three photos.
