In February, I went to India for 2 whirlwind weeks! As my last visit had been 26 years ago, I was long overdue for another stay. And wow! As expected, the country once again delighted and astonished me, and left me with the sense that a lifetime wouldn’t be enough to experience all of India’s wonders. In the meantime, here are some sketches from my travels. Although I became reacquainted with watercolour (the traveling artist’s friend), our hectic itinerary did not allow much time for staying in one place to absorb and create. That will be the next trip’s focus. Enjoy!
First stop, Mumbai:
Clockwise: Mumbai architecture and cityscape, trying on saris in a Fort district clothing store, and street performer.
Backwaters boat tour, Cochin
Kathakali dance: Cochin, Kerala
Tamil Nadu: Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary
27 species spotted by my birdwatching spouse, who pointed these out to me.
