Goa and Karnataka

From Goa to Karnataka.

Goa was my favourite place in India. Luckily I stayed out of town and away from all the tourists and beaches. I had a nice guest house by the river which was very quiet. I hired a scooter and just went out to the lake and birded most of the time. And exploring when I was in the mood.

Gravel Barges
Gravel Barges.

These were on the opposite side to the ferry from Divar Island. It looked like they were loading up with gravel or sand.

safety first
Safety First in India!

Welding without a safety helmet. He did have a little square of dark glass. I never saw a worker use safety gear. They were grinding metal, stone without safety glasses or any protection. I was horrified. There must be billions of accidents at work every day.

I caught the sleeper bus to Hampi from Goa and stayed about four days. This elephant was getting washed in the morning. After that I crossed the river in a boat.

Coracle and street cart
Crazy Transport solutions

This is a street food cart getting carted across the river in a coracle! Far out brussel sprout. You see some weird crap in India.

This lady milked the buffalos behind my room morning and afternoon. Old skool.

I bumped into this kid with chilli stalks stuck to his head! He was very funny. I had to take his photo. This was at a small village close to Hampi – Kamalapura.

I caught another bus to Shimoga and then went to Chikmagalur where I went for a walk around the lake just out of town. Some guy asked me to take his photo, so I took his mate instead. doh!
