Gorgeous picture- stunning, in fact.
The quote is so true.
I recall reading about an island whose inhabitants believed that to be extremely obese was quite attractive. I wish I remembered where I read that. I supposed it would be difficult to become obese on a tropical island- not many ice cream shoppes, perhaps?
