Stuff I collect: Bells

Not just any bells...animal bells, old bells, bells with a certain patina, a history, a story.

Check out this yak bell a friend trekked all the way home from Nepal for me...friends know what friends like.

It hangs neatly next to my sheep bell, the one I stuffed in my luggage when I was in Portugal.

I am still looking for a sheep bell here in Chinle.  

But for now I have this cow bell.  A treasured find at the local swap meet.

Each one has a distinct sound and shape and size.

Just imagine what I might find in Italy, Mozambique this summer and Taiwan in October!
