Next day – off to Dhankar

India 2010

Every family – if they have cattle or not – of a village has to take care of all the animals for one day. So one or more members of that family bring them to the feeding grounds in the morning. Watch over them for the day and return home with them in the evening.

Part of Dhankar Gompa – this part is not in use anymore as the whole temple is in danger of falling down from the mountain.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.

  1. Hi mein Grosser,
    wir sind zurück aus der Sonne und hier ist es lausig kalt!
    Ich hoffe für euch Wandersleut, dass eure Tour im September bei besserem Wetter stattfindet. Wann kommst Du wieder?
    Pass auf Dich auf und zieh Dich warm an,
    bis bald,
    Dein alter joga

  2. Montag abend bin ich schon wieder in Stuttgart. 21.08 mit dem ICE aus Frankfurt. Wenn nichts schiefgeht.
