Now, let me tell you that I was absolutely amazed by every little thing I saw here.
The photos, the colours, your superb English.
Wow! I found at last a way of getting to know India, one of my favourites destinations ...but unfortunately where I have never been, YET!

I love your culture.
I keep telling everybody that I must have been oriental in one of my previous re-incarnations :)))

I'll return, you can count on that!

Very interesting images on your Blog post today. The snake looks very 'cosy' in the basket but he also looks ready to strike. I'm glad I'm not the man looking after him.
