On the Road again!

Tonight i have a sleeper bus to Hampi. If you ever been to India you might know the concept of a sleeper bus. I did saw them the 1st time in China. But there they are a bit different. Think about beds instead of seats in the bus and stack one on the lower bed and you get the idea. You can see the Chinese ones in Laos as well. Here in India they put a single bed on one side and a double bed on the other – only under the double bed there are normal seats – that way they fit more people in the bus. For me the bed is way to small of course but still better than the way to small seats!

I have to leave to Goa at the 14th or the night before as i have my flight to the north at the 15th in the morning. In Jaisalmer i shall attend the desert festival. “The Book” writes this: A chance for moustache-twirlers to compete in the ‘Mr Desert’ contest, and a host of other desert delights. Lets see – guess there will be something worth to go into my lens onto my sensor and than on the sd card!

Gokarna – A Day in the City

February 5, 2011 at 11:26

Wanted to shoot some big birds today. A few days ago i saw at last 50 of em over a small pond with lots of fish. Eagel and what not, all slow sailing in the air and of course low as they went for the fish. And today? Not a single one of them – great! It all started when i walked from my beach to the town and Halfway Point, a cheap and really good food place, was closed. Next i went to the BSNL office on the end of town – and he could not put internet on my phone. Than i did meet a VW bus from Leonberg – well lets say i did talk to the guys and gave them directions. Than off to the beach to take some pix of Manu and later after dinner they did pull the small wagon to the temple and bag. Another day in India!
