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.
