Barcelona, a photo a day

Neighbours


No, this isn’t some soap from Down Under! No Kylie Minogue!
We travelled quite extensively, and these are pictures from our last known abode before we moved to Barcelona, 17 months ago.
Faridabad, state of Haryana, India. Near New Delhi. These were our neighbours from hell. About 40 of them. And believe me, we lived in a quite posh area (hi Leif).
All the balconies were caged, as you wouldn’t want one (or 40) of these neighbours inside your house! They can injure you severely, or probably even kill you. One trick: do not stare at them, as it makes them absolutely furious.

  12. On the cable television program here in the US, and on YouTube.com you can see programs from all over the world that last about 10 minutes and you can get all four or five segments which would last about an hour. The programs are called, “Sunrise Earth.”

    Anyway, it is on each morning here with a different program from somewhere in the world. No talking. Just the camera running and picking up local sounds.

    Not long ago they filmed a village in India where these monkey ruled and were everywhere. I wondered who fed them. And then I saw one pull and taking a sack from a person walking down the street.

    I wouldn't much like that either.

    Today we got to see Yosemite and several places in it.
