Just got home from India and I am very “thankful” to be home. I had a rough trip home that lasted almost 40 hours with delayed airplanes and missed connections. All of this reminding me how much I missed my family. I will share some very random pictures… Some interesting, many weird and one or two touching. (At least they were touching to me)
I want to start with two weird pictures from Paris.
The photo is for “Brow Powder”. (What exactly is “brow powder”?… and does this mean that animals tested it on humans?) I am wondering does it make your eyebrow look like the eyebrow on the left or right of this girl? My guess is the one on the left since this is what I imagine a gorilla wanting the eyebrow to look like.
This window display with the oddly cool/sexy sheep (wow do I feel wrong saying that) caught my attention. Regardless of how you feel about a red headed sheep… please just “Say no to uncool wool”.
Now it is time to share pictures from India…
First some pictures that represent my personal glimpses into the fascinating world of India. Scenes that made me smile and others that broke my heart… Scenes that made me grateful for what I have and others that touched my soul changing the way I look at the world. (wow… that last part was a bit dramatic… I am going to leave off “words” and let you perceive them in your own way)
Now… for my typical tourist pictures!
On my drive to Pune I love looking at all of the trucks which are usually fantastically decorated. This truck had “wait for side” written on the back… I waited expecting something… and well nothing. I have no idea what “wait for side” means.
Here is another back of a truck message that I just don’t understand… “MILK NOT FOR SALE”…. I saw this on many trucks. Why are they saying that the milk is not for sale… what is the milk for? (can’t be for “rent”)
I have driven this toll road from Mumbai to Pune at least 8 times this year and have never noticed this sign… “Caution! Accidental Prone zone”. Wonder how many others have missed this sign
Obviously this truck didn’t see the sign… The cab was completely burnt. I hope the driver was ok. (Must have been “Accidental”… you know… the zone is prone to that kind of stuff)
At the local grocery store I noticed this “free water dispenser”. I am always very careful with respect to drinking water in India. I am even more careful when I notice that everyone shares one metal cup to take that drink.
I bought this at the grocery store and had it eaten in about 30 minutes… then I noticed it was a “FAMILY PACK”. I feel like a pig… Is this really considered a family pack in India?
Speaking of food… CUSTARD APPLE? I have never had one of these… I wanted to buy them but had no idea how they must be prepared. Anyone out there… are they good? How do you eat them?
Let me just say one thing… I need this sign for my home bathroom with a switch that lights it up and the bathroom ventilator at the same time. (I also like the “WATER LEAK SYSTEM HOOTER”… )
“Not all addictions are harmful”… my new personal mantra… although the sign does draw the line at smoking.
Last sign… and yes “SIZE also matters”. My co-workers pointed this out and said this one is directed at me… and that I needed to take this picture for my blog. I said that I didn’t find it funny… (nor did I appreciate their innuendo)
Thanks India for another fascinating trip and thank you everyone who has taken time to stop and view this post!
