SOME ODDS N’ ENDS AS I LEAVE OOTY ..

I think by now you all know that I ‘keep-track-of-my-territory’ pretty closely.  I ask you to take a look at the below two photos taken from my room.  You have seen the general view below several times.  Hint .. just let your eyes wander-up-the-road .. focus on the road.

DAYTIME 004

TRAFFIC 002Now get-out your reading glasses and peruse the below photo taken this morning.  You are looking for ‘something new’ today in the view from my room.  Let your eyes just wander-up-the-road.

ARCH2You know me .. old ‘soft-hearted’ Cap.  Below is a closer look up the road.

ARCH 003Now you can’t miss the ‘new addition’ to my roadway view.

ARCH 004I got out my walking-shoes and went out to explore my new sight.  “Hello Mister Archway!  You are pretty snazzy!” .. “Thanks Dad!  I think I am!  But then-again .. I am all that I have!”

ARCH 006So me-being-me I ‘asked-around’ as to ‘what-is-going-on-here’?

ARCH 007It seems that the above gentleman is the Prime Minister of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu and he is going to visit Ooty this afternoon.

I just thought maybe you’d be interested in some ‘local-doings’ today.

Here is a new friend for us all.  While I was out on my long walk this morning .. the below chap called out to me .. “Dad!  Take MY photo.  I AM A REAL mini-truck!”  Indeed you are a real mini-truck.

MINITRUCK 001Have I just been missing these vehicles back home in the United States?

When I’m hot I’m hot .. another seat on the bus today.  I rode part of the way back to my hotel after my very long walk.

All of that tea you saw on the tea plantation last Wednesday has to go someplace.

TEAOK .. time to sign-off here and get-to-work over on Blogspot.

Much Joy .. Cap
