Thursday Portrait

Hello, and welcome to Hampi! I am squinting my right eye because my hair is not covering it! You know how I am. Since my life is pretty boring right now what with sewing and ....sewing...and more sewing, I thought I'd dig into some archives this week. In case you can't tell, I am hot, and starved half to death in this picture after the train ride I am about to show you part of. I think I look half cute when I'm suffering!

Gary took this video in the middle of the night on the train to Hampi. Check out the snoring on that ji!

You all know what this is by now!

Some of the cutest school kids! Imagine attending school in this centuries old city among the ruins of Vijayanagar!

A quick colorful glance!

Where I find out suddenly that Rameshji is married!

My little friend Varsha reading Green Eggs and Ham while I chew my cud apparently!

Gary and Abdul played drums for hours.
I hope that was more exciting than sewing.
Have a lovely day!

It's nice to dip into the past when things get boring, huh?

Yep, Boyle is one of my fav reads - I did like "Drop City" best so far - seems close to home!

Traveling on trains like that is not my idea of fun. Don't think I'll be going to India anytime soon.
