3. The Mainas

ucelli venditore 1


There was a bird seller sitting in the street and I stopped by to take a picture.

“Why are these young birds in a cage? Have they stolen the jewelry from houses?”

No Sir, these are Mainas, the talking birds, we teach them to answer when someone knocks at the door and they yell “Who is?”. We keep them at home in a cage in order that they keep us company with their voice.

Oh, my small daughters take a lesson from the fate of the poor Mainas, and don’t shout too loud, by talking too much one may end up in a cage.

Keeping quiet is the best way to avoid trouble
