He's all right! Aren't you, cat? Poor cat! Poor slob! Poor slob without a name! The way I see it I haven't got the right to give him one. We don't belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's. - Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

India Photography 3





India Photography 3
A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.  ~Eudora Welty

So hello everybody, sorry I haven't been blogging for a few days (slight technical difficulties)

Anyway I am back to doing another India Blog, fun stuff. 

Anyway we have now moved onto Bangalore, which was probably my favorite destination of the trip. I was shown around by two Indian local women, they knew everything about the city so it was great to be able to experience places that others may not have been able to go. It was unbelievable ! I didn't take many photos (which I am kicking my self for !!) But I felt it was slightly rude to take photos of people kids... if they even cared :/

 The jewelry was outstanding ! It was mostly silver, and the stone you see here. Silver is like a big thing in India so it was pretty expensive! The bracelet was around 300 dollars, (12,000 rupees ?), its very fun to argue and bargain the price.

Yes I did get a henna ! The story is actually really good... I was walking through a market place in a reasonably busy part of Bangalore, and basically the women I was with asked a women where I could get a henna done ,  she told her 5 year old son to show us the way. When we got there we had to go down a small mud alley way and duck into a house made of cement, witch very small ceilings and the whole house was tiny ! The women I was with were extremely hesitant... but it was an elderly lady and her two very young sons. I thought the danger risk was low. Any way she did a "simple" pattern on the front and back of my hands... basically this dark layer rubs off and the Orange ink stays on. It was only meant to last about 3 or 4 days but as my body temperature was so hot it lasted 3 weeks !!








Another India blog down !!

My favorite song of the moment is definitely Magic - B.O.B, sorry slightly random but I'm listening to it right now !!

Got to dash !!! Hope you enjoyed this blog !!
