Creatures Big & Small

There are so many interesting animals and people here in India that I wanted to create a post just to the variety of animals and people all sharing the same world, the same country, the same city, the same street.  I love the birds, it is kind of a theme with me right now, hence the name of the blog.  Here are some that share my home.  The first one, Myna bird was at my door at the hotel when we first arrived in Delhi.  The parrots and peacocks live right here one the property where my home in in Jaipur.

These creatures are the ones I pass while driving around jaipur.  I see many stray dogs, a few cats, random cows here and there, camels (my favorite so far), horses, and more; here is a sampling:

Then there is this little guy who spooked me the other day when he ran across the screen door as I opened the door to the sun room.

Jaipur is home to many beautiful and friendly people, just take a look:

It is truly an adventure and an awesome experience being here and I am so glad that I jumped at this opportunity.  I know living here will impact my life in ways I haven’t yet imagined!  ~Namaste
