Pitho was a very popular game when I was growing up. Two teams of minimally two players each could play this outdoor game. All you needed was a tennis ball and seven flat stackable stones.
This game involved hitting and scattering the pile of stones with the ball and then trying to put it together again without getting out. It was a wonderful way to run, use excess energy and have lots of fun.
Seeing this photo took me back many decades. We kids were able to entertain ourselves without any gadgets or devices.
Beautiful, fun-filled youthful days!
