SKYWATCH--REEDS


 When I visited the town of Belo Blato, about 60 kms from Belgrade, I was a bit taken aback by these odd-shaped 'haystacks'.  They are not haystacks at all, but rather bundles of reeds that are later sold for roofing on various structures.

Here's a  link for you. Notice that this industry has been around a long time and that it is a fact that insects do not attack the reed stem, hence making then perfect for roofing.

Greetings and Salutations! I never would have guessed that these were used for roof tops. I just had a new roof put on the cabin. Roofing materials are guaranteed for 50 years. Learned something new today thanks to your photograph. Thank you for sharing.

 That's  Nikola Tesla  hitching a ride on this Air Serbia flight, which was returning to Belgrade's airport named after him. I hope ...
