Chennai Week

Just some random shots from throughout the week!

Family of FIVE on a motorbike! Christians here wear white to church,
hence the matching outfits.

The Theosophical Society in Chennai boasts the largest Banyan tree in the world. If you are unfamiliar, the branches of the tree grow out, then little shoots drop down from the branches. Those shoots attach to the ground and form another trunk. The tree just keeps spreading and spreading. It's a beautiful site to see!

I just thought this description of the Vegetable Jal Fraize was adorable.
Very typical of the English colloquialisms used here.

Lunch! Gobi Masala (Cauliflower in Indian tomato sauce) over rice with Garlic Naan bread.
Delicious but really heavy--yoga was tough after this lunch, even with a 3 hour lunch break!

There is a nice private school across the street from the KYM. The other day, I watched some boys playing. They were using a rock as the ball and a textbook as the bat! Kids always find a way to play no matter what. A nice reminder to create our own fun!

See that brown spot? That's just a huge cow resting on some garbage on the side of the road.
No big deal.

Tonight, some classmates and I are going to see some contemporary dance at the Government Museum's Theatre. I will try to sneak a few pics if I can!

xo, Suz
