JUST A LITTLE FUN HERE AT .. BABAKAPS DOT NET ..

Here in Ooty .. aka .. UDHAGAMANDALEM .. Patti liked the way I suggested you look at this amazing single word ..

UD – HAGA – MAN – DALEM ..

I think of it like I do a long Germanic word! Bautechnischarbitesgroup .. aka BAG .. NOW ‘ZILLA BE KIND! .. it has been some thirty seven (37) long years ago!

The electrical power went OFF at 8AM this morning and only resumed service at 4:45PM ‘or so’ late this afternoon ..

So let’s us get-on-with-the-gettin’-on!

I canNOT .. adequately tell you just how-very-lucky I am feeling! If you will study for a moment or two the below three .. ah-h-h-h .. let me call them rather ‘unusual photographs’ .. I will explain-to-you what they are following them.

BUILDINGS 001

BUILDINGS 002

BUILDINGS 003

What you are looking at in the above three photographs is the view between two buildings. I would conservatively estimate that at a minimum .. 40% of all hotel rooms here in Ooty .. look directly into the wall of the building next to it!  Their ‘view’ is a wall with little to no sunlight.  I know because the entire one side of my hotel Sapphire Paradise does just this.  As I walk down the hallway and look into rooms being cleaned I see their ‘blank dark wall’ view.

So what have I to look at?  A wonderful expansive view .. by day or by night .. and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY VIEW FROM MY ROOM.

By day ..

NIGHTTIME 004By Day ..

DAYTIME 003And lastly .. By Night ..

NIGHTTIME 001I often arise during the middle-of-the-night and JUST ENJOY my NIGHT VIEW.

OK you cynics!  It’s true .. I am fortunate enough to be ABLE-TO-FINANCIALLY-AFFORD my top-floor corner room!  And to have an excellent travel agent in Purush working on my-side to secure-for-me my wonderful room.

AGAIN .. I FEEL SO BLESSED AND I FEEL SO LUCKY WITH WHAT I HAVE!

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you .. it will be enough.  Meister Eckhart.
