Chaiwallah

India

Postcard 1214

Cup of Chai, Nomads? This friendly chap served us a cup of that most agreeable of Indian beverages, Chai: a sweet milky tea that is served throughout that great nation and is a personal favourite of your humble author. The vigorous scooping action that you are seeing is repeated multiple times, one presumes to mix the ingredients thoroughly although there is a touch of performance to the action and an integral part of the Chai quaffing experience. Yours With Extra Sugar, Simon

Bow to the Cow

Srivilliputter, India

Postcard 425

Vanakkam from India! Go just about anywhere in India, and you're bound to come across a cow, walking around without a care in the world. They stop traffic, eat what they wish, and even walk into a restaurant or two. That's because in India, a cow or 'bovine,' if we're getting technical, is sacred. Cars could be backed up down the street and still, the cow gets the right of way. In the little town I was staying, these kids dressed up a cow and walked it around asking for donations to some 'charity' that I'm convinced was a hoax. Still, even growing up on farm like I did, it's not everyday a cow covered in flowers is paraded around the village. I fed into their sneaky plan and got a photo with them in return. Cheers, Brock
