Weekly Photo Challenge : Window – Jendela

In Bahasa Indonesia, window is called ‘jendela’. It’s become part of our language though actually it derives from Portuguese word ‘Janela’. Many Portuguese words absorbed into our language such as ‘serdadu from soldado, pintu from pinto, tentu from tanto, antero from entero, etc. Window is our middleway between ourselves and outside. Through window, we can see the world thoroughly, what happened with a windowless home? so scarry and smelly! Nothing but devilish thing you’ll see there. So, go out and see the world through the window.


Special for this week’s challenge

        She may just be looking at other people on the street beside her. But she could be thinking of her new path — where she is going. Interesting!

      2. Yes…:)
        And in my imagination, she’s wondering about who and what will she see on her destination.
