Feeding animals on a farm...

After visiting churches, we set out to meet a cousin who lives near a farm.
Nice houses on the way...
 Quaint roads...
A week old calf...
 Pretty horses... fed them apples that were lying about. 
 The curious one...
This black one is an Icelandic horse...
Sheep grazing away...
We banged their lunch pail around and they came running...
Feeding them...
A flowering trough..  
 On the way to another aunt's place, saw a rainbow...
 At the other aunt's place... pretty lace curtains...
 Creates such a charming affect.... 
 An owl statue in the garden...
 Celebrated our last night in Germany with champagne and cheesecake... 
Took this picture from the train on the way back to Geneva. We had an amazing time with relatives in such a beautiful place... thanks guys for the fun memories. 

Next post will be about our trip to Paris...

This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama.

She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
