tulbagh

A road trip, sometime away.. 2 hours from Cape Town. A beautiful cottage overlooking a magnificent dam, where dogs swam, families fished and we just chilled in the warm winter sun.  The thing I love about autumn or should I say winter, is the constant blue skies and the colours that fill your day.

ritual bathing in holy waters

It was a charming experience to watch the locals daily ritual of bathing in the holy waters.

The women fully dressed in sari’s, every colour of the rainbow and the men stripped down …

The Galtaji monkey temple is at Khaniya, Jaipur, Rajasthan.  Although it was out of season for me and it was not a very hot day, I caught a glimpse of this very special ritual of women and men, stripping down and bathing in the holy waters.  It was just endearing to watch these woman bathing so gentle and praying as they cleansed themselves.
