KTB's first full day here...

Yesterday her fever seemed better, so we had a new maid:

She was teaching her GF to put pink dolls on his glasses:



and her grand-aunt how to do puja:

We went into a shop to buy some clothes for her, and saw baby jetties for sale (note for non-Indians, "chaddi" is what we call underpants)

On the many walls of the city, one finds beautiful art work; it was lovely to see both painted and real bullock-carts together!

The evening had an enlightened grandfather and grand-daughter laughing at each other!
