Karnataka

We've been in South India for a week now, staying first in Mysore - a beautiful 
city - just for two days to sort out forward destinations.


a visit to the local bird sanctuary 


the islands overflowing with painted storks,
pelicans, spoonbills etc. etc. busy making their nests


did I mention rather large crocodiles?

The Railway Museum just marvellous. you could climb
up on to the plate and play engine drivers



oops


an old Austin brought out from England in the 30's
converted for the Railway Inspector to travel in

then there was the Government Silk Factory
gosh, the noise.  we watched the total process from
spooling the silk yarn, through to the finished product
No photos allowed.


For a bit of colour - how about a collection of buckets?!!
