Well, one thing is for sure, we never got to see one of these at show and tell.

What a fun shot!

Thank you, Pascal and MaryAlice. Definitely an imperishable memory! The elephant was giving blessings to those who gave it food or coins. (It ate the food, and its keeper got the coins.) The girls were heading into the temple.

Greetings, Marilyn

What a neat little ritual. It's so interesting to learn of these things. I am getting quite an education on here thanks to your many travels and vast knowledge. It is great fun for me. Thank you, Marilyn! MaryAlice

Dear Marilyn! India is a very colourful country. Interestingly to look after the street scenes on your photos. Greetings from Ukraine. Eva

Thank you, Eva, for your comment. I like to post "orderly" pictures, and there is much disorder on the streets of India! But I am thinking of posting a few more street scenes that I believe give a feel for "real life" there. Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

Very nice shot Marilyn and a good idea to post some real life shots. Greetings Luud

Thanks, Luud. India helped me get over my fear of "real life shots" because people were happy to be photographed. Greetings, Marilyn
