Nice pics Orchid. If you could post where and of what,  that would be great as most people wouldn't have a clue.

Thank you for the beautiful photos. I especially like the interior of the building on reply #3. Any chance you could tell us the city?  :)

So beautiful, so diverse, so inspiring... It's been my desire too to visit India, and now, thanks to you, dear Orchid, it's at least partially satisfied. We are all children of propaganda of our respective times, whether we are aware of it or not. When i was growing up, in a kinder and more idealistic world, my then-country used to be part of "Non-Aligned Movement", alongside India. Our then omnipotent leader, Tito, was fascinated with India. So, we grew up watching Indian movies. We were always given example of how powerful and dignified was Gandhi. Then we all read Autobiography of a Yogi, Krishnamurti's books, Osho's books... Most of us practiced Yoga. As teens we were studying carefully Kama Sutra, it was the only "sexual education" available to us.  :innocent: I remember to this day that at the time ( i think i was 15) i had decided lovemaking was not for us, common people, because 1. it said explicitly the teacher should be present during "execution" of some poses, and i knew those teachers were not available in our parts  :snivel: 2. before engaging in lovemaking, a woman had to teach a parrot to speak. I had bought a parrot, but despite my efforts, it never uttered a single word  :hidechair:
Most of my friends who traveled to India posted either pictures of extreme poverty  or 1001 selfie from some godforsaken ashram. None of those had sparked all these fondest memories i have from a time that had long gone by. Yours did, dear Orchid. Thank you for that.
