Road Trip

Those waving of small outstretched hands, group of guys crowding around bikes in admiration & respect, smiles while riding past, blush on face of village belles. Well well well, thats why heart of India is villages. Lush green fields, rich rivers, mist covered mountains, unspoilt beauty.

Long stretches with no sight of people. Roads filled with potholes and stones, few stretches of neat roads. Few close shaves with oncoming vehicles, a real close encounter with a beautiful snake. The snake got me confused, whether to take a snap or stand still. I chose the latter 🙂
