Hand of Friendship

an experience of food

A member of Being Australian sent us this picture of a bloke's arm offering us a beer - no other details provided.
 
It looks as though a day on the job has just wound up, the sun is setting, tools are packed away in the truck...and the time has come for relaxation and a drink with some mates...
 
I don't know who this fellow is or what or where he was. Evidently, judging by the brand of beer, just another Australian moment in the life of someone somewhere in this wide brown land.
