Visiting Rajasthan, Kerala and South Goa, India
Club member Margot Henny will share a small slide show of her recent 2-month trip visiting Rajasthan, Kerala and South Goa, India. It was an interesting experience. 20k from the Pakistani border, being advised that an armed force member had just been sent home in two pieces with his head cut off, they decided it best to turn back. She had fun enacting a childhood fairy tale by staying in the top turret of Jaisalmer Fort, built in 1156 deep in the Thar desert – a scene of many battles. With over 22 million people in Delhi alone – the varying faiths with differing sects that layered and layered again and again – and with the language changing and the tangible history – together with the various usages of animals and birds - it was a constant eye opener.
