India boasts quite a variety of homes, from the higher caste to the lower caste.
When I pulled my bedroom curtain aside this morning, this is what I saw--a blanket-covered lump sticking out from under a rock truck. One by one, four men crawled out yawning. They've been working all day drilling a bore well in hopes of hitting water for the new home construction. Dirty and noisy!
The chip shop where they fry up the potatoes in the huge vat located in the front. Delicious!
Stray dogs and garbage go hand-in-hand here.
Open-air markets line the streets, selling everything from mattresses to dish detergent.
India's coconut "Sonic!" The merchant whacks off the top, then plops a straw into the hole. Or if the customer prefers, the seller chops the coconut in two pieces, then slices off a portion of the outer shell in the shape of a spoon so that the buyer can scoop out the white coconut meat.
One coconut costs R 18 (18 rupees, equivalent to about 0.30 US).
