Just Some Pics
Decided to take my camera out today just to have something to send along to brighten up the blog which has been pictureless for awhile. You can see pics of the local slum just down the wadi from Swiss Cottage.
There were more people living here but they were removed from the area last year when work on the new parking area began. You can see in one of the pictures the dwellings directly behind the new parking area.
It is going to be even worse for these people once cars start parking there…just imagine the fumes they will have to live with.
You can also see the new road paved
as well as the beginnings of the retainer wall I wrote about using the rocks which are worked on until one side is flat to be used as the front of the wall.
You can also get a glimpse of the newly tarred roads which are seen all over town – another improvement being made before the kumbha mela which begins next month. The roads are tarred during the day, with people walking all over them even while they are still wet and sticky…it is all very impractical but seems to work…
Views from the restaurant and a picture of Lalita cooking my porridge.
Also a couple of pics of the building site I mentioned previously”
Also a few pics from Swiss Cottage..even though you’ve seen most of these before you can see them in the full gallery at the end of the post with some more pictures mentioned above
