Part Two--Promised pictures.

Here are more pictures, from the trek, as promised.




The drive was lovely.There seemed to be at least a hundred shades of green! a real treat for city dwellers.

The steps to reach the cave temple.


Atul peeping out from one of the windows cut in the stone.(The living quarters are amazing, when you think about how the monks lived there hundreds of years ago)


Another View.There was water inside flowing out--so I did not venture in.I wondered what this cave might have been used for.
See--how it is carved and cut into the hill?

A view from inside.

A sculpture of Shiva and Parvati atop Nandi.I found it so beautiful.


Look carefully! There were tadpoles in the spring that we passed on the way.
(And this time Blogger has decided to be kind.Pictures are enlarging!)

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later.
