Dec 09 – Jan 10 Our Holiday in India

John, Sally and I decided to keep a family journal while we were away and here are some extracts from it.
Some of the drawings included here are from a little sketchbook I also took along that 
Dan Berry gave me to fill as part of a project. He has sent out 140 all around the world and is now waiting for them to return full.
SO ANYWAY…off we set, haversacks, moneybelts etc

Wording on an advert….

We went to “The Rat Temple”, at Deshnoke, near Bikaner, Rajasthan.
Then we sat and watched the pigeon laps around the temple….I’ve added a comentary here you can just hear.

Sunrise on the River Ganges, Varanasi
Evening ritual on the River Ganges, Varanasi…
On Christmas Day we played the drawing game….you take it in turns to say what to draw and all draw it and compare….

The reverse of a business card we found…..
Bikaner, Rajasthan
A newspaper feature
A ride in a tuk-tuk

  1. WOW!Really envious of you trotting off to India for Christmas. INDIA! Bohemians.Have you read Geoff Dyer's 'Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi'? Read it recently. Loved it.

  2. Yes, I think really I should have included the soundtrack of the three of us bickering our way around the place….just all wanting to be in charge…. there we are….What a great title…I'd better read it x

  3. We KEPT spotting that circling behaviour, I s'pose they always do it, it's only when you're on holiday you get the luxury of noticing that sort of stuff! x
