Location: Where? There. There on the stair.
Not that anyone noticed I was away, and I've been back almost a week now, and been catching up with things and people and stuff in turn (good god, citycycling has to be out this Friday and I've barely started it...)

So, just a pic a day. If you want to see more the Flickr set is here, and words to go with a pic a day are at Blipfoto.

Oh, there are some bikes at the end though... (so quite a lot of pics to load)

Day 1 - Heading to Kolkata
Image

Day 2 - Colonial Arrogance
Image

Day 3 - Flower Market
Image

Day 4 - First sight of the Himalaya
Image

Day 5 - Praying at the Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Centre
Image

Day 6 - Marching for Gorkhaland
Image

Day 7 - Heading back to the Plains
Image

Day 8 - Buddha's first sermon site
Image

Day 9 - Sunrise on the Ganges
Image

Day 10 - For reasons gone into in detail on Blipfoto there's no picture for Day 10...

Day 11 - Fatehpur Sikri (so as not to be predictable with a Taj Mahal shot...)
Image

Day 12 - Evil Gandhi in Shimla
Image

Day 13 - Ready to Pounce... (and he did)
Image

Day 14 - The biggest mosque in India
Image

And the bikes...

It's all about the wheel of life. That move clockwise, so moving it anti-clockwise is going against that wheel and is 'bad'.

The 'colonial arrogance' is, notwithstanding any political or historical viewpoint, very beautiful...
