On the road again



The flags are out, I'm off to India for a whole month.   I received an invite I could not refuse - to a Mela (festival) in Kutch, western Gujarat.  An exhibition of stitching, with camel cart rides, and hands on workshops to mention but a few items on the agenda.  It is going to be wonderful, 
can't wait.    Check out www.kala-raksha.org for more details.

And so to the blog - well it seems a good idea!   I can share my photos and give you a glimpse
 of village life in a remote corner of India.  All this is dependent upon finding an internet connection. Yes, they do have them, but it is so slow - makes you realise how lucky we are.   Then, quite often the connection just goes down - probably camels.   I will post as and when 
I can - keep checking!

Brilliant, Tiggy!!!
I like the heading backcloth - you'll have to teach me how to do that now. And lovely pix. I do prefer the large siz. Although they can be enlarged by clicking on them I find the smaller sizes hard to see. Great pic of camel's backside.Well i was admiring the fringes really on the stuff in its back. And those flags are such superb colours.
