Note the beanies, jumpers and shawls…

When you tell people you are travelling to India they always seem to presume that it is hot in India ALL the time. However it is winter in India at the moment and in some areas it gets very cold.

This photo was taken on a trip to the hill station ~ Kodaikanal in winter. We were totally unprepared for the cold and I have never been so cold at night in India as I was there. Each afternoon at about 1.30pm a thick fog rose up from the valley and blanketed Kodaikanal in complete whiteness for the rest of the day…an amazing experience!

A few notes on goats…

Now for some great goat quotes…and more cute goats I met on my last trip.

“The spiritual path is not a solo endeavour. In fact, the very notion of a goat who is trying to free him/herself is a delusion. We are all in it together and the company of spiritual friends helps us realise our interconnectedness.” Tara Brach…
