On the road again, Indian style
Bussed it from outside Tanjore today, with a big lunch stop along the way for a typical Tamil banquet of excellent vegetarian nicey spicy dishes. An old temple was another stop - yes, more temples, but it had been used as an ancient tribe's place of worship, the tribe disappeared and the locals took it on as their own - strange ceramic statues of the deity's protectors. Wonderful sight of equine sentinels, broken, busted, solid, painted - all on form too. Arrived in Mandurai late this afternoon and catching up with blogging etc. I've just flicked through 92 TV channels - they love their TV in southern India.
