Attractively rural -part one

Standard

Moments from my kovai trip, which has a green green cover, and some super super farmers… More about that soon.

But these sights are to show revs what looks attractively rural, for the tired chennai eye

This is a kolu festival of tyres...I saw a streetful.

  1. The potman was our total favourite in all the years in des. We’d spot one everywhere and had this running gag that it was a spy disguised as a potman who turned up everywhere we went. There was a pot shop near school so that confirmed our suspicions. And there was a painting of a cycle loaded with pots in the Mumbai airport – had us in splits, of course no one else understood what was so funny.

    Lurve rural des. Sigh. But then lurve rural Blighty too šŸ™‚ (Basic problem with me – want to be everywhere at the same time).

    • You must be the mmmim, with your desire to be everywhere. Omg. Have to express solidarity with your spouse…

      • Oh yes. He makes up for me. Firmly planted in as few places as possible. May grow roots too if allowed to.
        I would go mad if I lived like that.

        • Chox, you are talking about me, as well.

          You type A folks or are you type Aplus plus plus?

          And just living in the same environment as you has passivelogues, like me bewildered. You are a typhoon in a whirlpool and on a dull day, the reverse!

          We have no chance!
