I have not had much (
or any) spare time this trip. I have had to work all of the weekend and so I have had little or no time to do any site seeing. I have found time to go on early morning walks and I would like to share several pictures with you. I took the feature picture of this post near my hotel and most of the other pictures will be near the hotel or on the way to work.
Last trip I showed a picture of a chicken truck… I now have more to share.
This gentleman had two young boys helping him get the chickens out of the cages on the truck… Hmmm I thought the chickens would have been happy leaving the truck… but you never know with chickens
Once out of the truck he would tie the chickens feet together and hang them on a scale. He did this three times until I imagine the small shop had what they requested. I was surprised how still the chickens were once they were hung upside down. I was a little disappointed because I was hoping to see more… you know heads being chopped off… headless chickens running around… but I was not that lucky.
I have noticed these “thingies” hanging from cars or doors. There is a lemon and some chilis and something else (not sure what it is). I asked someone at the hotel and they said that it is to keep away Alakshmi… (I imagine people don’t like her since she brings bad luck and misfortune). They say she likes these types of food… and she will eat this and then go away… instead of coming inside.
Don’t speed and don’t share your passwords! Excellent advice and what a very helpful sign… I am a bit confused about the relationship between the two… and more confused realizing that this is a “Bank of Baroda” advertisement.
ummm…. I don’t think I am going to say anything about this one… except that I had to sign it.
One of the great things about India for English speakers is that you will find most signs have English. This does not mean that you will always understand them. I found this sign to be incredibly confusing.
