I woke up this morning and found that I had come down with a slight cold. After the morning festivities, which actually lasted through the afternoon meal, I went to the local market to buy a few things to nurse myself back to feeling better. The local store is about 1 km away and walking is about the only form a transportation available, so walk I did. Along the way I tried to find an appropriate image to relay the excursion. I could have taken pictures of loose dogs rummaging in a dumpster for food, or mopeds zipping up and down the road where I walked, but those seemed to commonplace for this place. The real picture was this one as I was about to turn the corner for home.
Music has been playing over loudspeakers most of the afternoon and into the evening. It seems very festive here as night comes and my second day in India comes to an end.
