The Saturday Photo Hunt - Colours - Cricket - March 8, 2014

It's always easier, when your brain is on Sabbatical ( or when you are in the 
company of a baby for a whole month - as I have been since my return from 
traveling most of January about some of the cities in which I've lived in the former 
Southern U. S. ), to have nice blogging memes to help stimulate blogging posts.
"Colours" had me pouring through hundreds of photographs this morning.  India
pictures are the most colorful in my collection although I do have some other 
wonderful ones from other travels.  Of course, seeing them made me very
wistful to get out the suitcases and start look at reservation sites.  I do plan to
head back to India in the next few months.  That country is now so much a part
of me!!




This colorful group of young cricketers played in the courtyard outside my
"home" in Sahar Village, Mumbai, almost every day.  They always called for
Aunty Carmen to come out and cheer them on.  None of the fancy cricket 
clubs has ever captured my heart as these youngsters did.

I am participating in



Add your colorful photo to join in the fun!

    1. These children were a delight during my first four month stay in India. I've returned twice since that time, often stopping back at Sahar Village and have run into the same group, of course, several inches taller.

    1. Well, rainfield, India has definitely become my second home. I just wish the airfares weren't so costly. I would prefer going for four months at a time, and returning to CA for four months at a time.
