Holidays will come again.
Meantime the DH and I are trawling through his digital photograph collection and are scratching the surface of the ?k (he’s reluctant to state a number) taken in India. The one above is from a trip to the US, but the rucksack goes everywhere.
How is this a prompt?
Bengal, Rajasthan and the return visit to Agra and Delhi were so full of interest, it’s difficult to know where to start. and I haven’t.
However, the magazines are currently looking for their summer and autumn stories featuring exotic places, so there may be an opportunity.
Will it be one of the truly fabulous palaces, the museum housing silver howdas, the museum of turbans? Or will it be one of the stories collected along the way? The sponsored tuk-tuk rally, for example?
This picture is of a member of a dancing act whose memorable performance was quite different to anything I’ve seen in the UK. India is also a great place to visit puppet theatres.
All in all, that one month has huge potential for story telling and now, when we can’t go anywhere as vibrant, colourful and different, might be the time to start remembering.
What gorgeous fabric! You must set a story in India, Anne.
Hi Kate, It’s almost overwhelming. Sights/sites, smells, sounds. Looking at the photos brought it all back and I have got one or two ideas bubbling away. Anne
