FIRST IMPRESSIONS
A poem by Rose Greedy

I can hear the rain splashing up
As the cars rush by
The trickle of water passing through the down spouts
The sun is hiding
The sky full of shadows dancing
The heat wave has finally let up
It seems like a gloomy day on first glance
Then I notice how the grass is greener
The trumpet plants are smiling up at me
The streets seem cleaner
The air easier to breath
I should never judge by first impressions
A lesson to myself

Tuk-Tuk

Mauli - is the sacred Hindu thread. The Mauli is tied on right hand of males and on left hand of females. Cotton strings in form of yarn in full red are most common as is red with small bits of yellow, and is worn to ward off evil from the person who wears this red thread

Crazy Traffic

Wish I was there again. Evocative images and the background you have added is perfect for the atmosphere of Indian cities at night. Now I want the smells - yes, all of them, and the sounds and the heat.
I am going to enjoy this trip so much.
