Random Moments & Ramblings

For the last few days, I have been doing a lot of research. Some of this research has been in the form of spending time with locals and absorbing their knowledge, some has been wandering around and just watching. I have been meeting fascinating people, tasting different foods and asking lots of questions about the way of life here. Along the way I have snapped some pictures, too. Here are a randomly selected mix of them. Most of these pictures just remind me of something neat that I have seen or felt here...

This is from an all girls school with 5,700 students, the largest in India. These girls are so beautiful and friendly!

One night, Liza and I got on a bus instead of walking or taking an "auto" - partially to save money, partially just for the fun of it. I loved the colors and light bouncing around inside!

I never drink 7up back home, but here they basically just have 7up, Pepsi and Fanta orange soda. They serve them in these used glass bottles...

One morning at the market with Raj and Susan, we visited the basket shop of a childhood friend of Raj, and we were invited to enjoy some tea and snacks. These sizzling, spicy cashews were so incredibly delicious!

On our way back outside I liked the way the light was peaking in.

Something about this picture mesmerizes me.

This market was like a department store: organized into sections like food, clothing, hardware and electronics.

And this is the beautiful Kurinji, Raj and Susan's cat.

This is totally random, I know, but I like that.

The green fruit piled up on the right kinda looks like artichokes, but are actually custard apples. They are hard to describe but the insides make a yummy dessert.
Rarely do you see these little rick-shaws lined up in such an organized manner.

On my way to my room yesterday, I came across a man knealing in the street lighting a candle. I stopped and watched him while he worked.

I would like to include a couple of your beautiful pictures of school girls in India, in a video I'm editing about an American woman who taught in Bombay in 1950. It's for a non-profit. Thanks for your consideration. -Ginger
