With Carbon (C) and Nitrogen (N),07 and 080211

It's been a busy couple of days, with idahoswede and kejn buying the sarees and salwar-kameez that they wanted (their tastes differ!) and then giving the orders to the tailors, mentioning about eighteen thousand times (and paying fairly heavy charges) to ensure that everything is picked up by today evening!

Here are Carolyn and Nina, photographing the Vidya Ganapati temple close to my home:

I've been taking them everywhere by bus, and they've been (I think) enjoying it! Here they are, in front of the Jayanagar Shopping Complex:

And here's each of them, getting measured by the tailor:

Is Nina looking amused, or apprehensive?

I caught them in the bright light, and deep shadows, looking up at the Jain Mandir:

And yesterday evening, THEY took US out to dinner at Barbeque Nation:

But in spite of that, my ankle, C's hip, and all...we managed to get in a Lalbagh walk this morning....post coming up!

I'm still having difficulties transferring photos from KM's laptop to this tablet (because the hard disk is already full with his older photos) so the Chambal River posts will have to wait a bit...

Hint and a Bull Dog.....

Yesterday, at Barbecue Nation, I spotted this very diplomatic drink:

"hint" 070211

Probably, it will give you a hint that you shouldn't have the next one?

And it's nice when your friends display the same sense of humour that you have....we were looking at the Glass House in Lalbagh this morning,and spotted this dog right next to the little statue of Nandi, the Divine Bull.... when N remarked, "That's a Bull Dog"!

I enjoyed that very much.
