I still remember when I was a student at Ponta Delgada High School in Azores, that most of us used to carry our books with a long narrow piece of leather, a simple belt, probably the High-Tech knap-sack of the sixties!...
I also remember pretty well that in the small villages around country areas, there was no electricity, so you could only study or read by candlelight…
Good old memories of good old country, good old days and good old school!!!
Kind regards to all my friends of Photoforun.

Believe it or not, ... I know that feeling, ... of reading under candlelight. Unfortunately it wasn't because of sweet 60's, but because of war. Nevertheless, ... it was nice reading experience.
