A few select photographs from my recent trip to India.
It’s a fascinating country, and on the whole, the people were very friendly. I’d love to return to see more and to meet some fellow blog authors.
Above is the view from the hotel in Mumbai, overlooking the Queen’s necklace — a long, curved strip of road that resembles a pearl necklace at night.
The River Princess (above) is a beached tanker that has been rusting just 500 metres off the coast of Candolim, Goa, since the year 2000. Apparently, work is underway to lighten it’s load so that tug boats can remove it.
I must admit, the rusting monster does make an intriguing backdrop for beach cricket.
On quite a few nights, my girlfriend and I were kept awake by the howling dogs that live by the beach — just too fast to catch.
Goa is one of Western India’s largest trading ports, and if you cast your eye to the horizon in the above shot, you’ll notice large tankers in the distance. They seem to be forever moored off the coast.
Anjuna market (pictured above) is a lively place where you can pick up spices, clothes, lanterns, chillums…
“Do you have a ticket for those bananas?”
On the way to Dudhsagar Falls we stopped to feed the monkeys. A lot of them seemed to prefer red onions to bananas, which no doubt did wonders for their mating.
Munching on coconut that dropped from a nearby tree.
If you have any stories from your time in India, I’d love to read them.
