Family

There is a place called Odanadi where women and children get a safe place to live. Boys and young men as well. It is a sad thing in India, or any place for that matter, where abuse is rampant. Women, children have no place to go. End up on the street, sold, or worse, continue […]

Second road trip…¬†Bylakuppe. This is a Tibetan refugee camp, actually more like a town, located a couple hours drive out of Mysore. The temple there was amazing. The Golden Temple. Walking around the grounds, in a quiet and serene setting was an extremely peaceful experience. Again, some drive-by shots of the life and countryside we […]

We got pegged right away as tourists (not difficult to do) and immediately had several “guides” helping us along our […]
