    I haven't been on the QB much the last few weeks because I've been in India on business. We've wrapped all that up now, and will be heading to the airport in a few hours to fly back home to the US. I thought I'd share a few pics that I took during my stay here. Such a wonderful, interesting place!

    The building that we worked in while here.

    A lady carrying her little one. Took the pic from a distance from my hotel room, so kind of blurry.

    Cobra flower, so named because the scent attracts cobras.

    Eddie, thanks for sharing your pictures. The flowers are exquisite. It must be awesome to see a bird of paradise growing. Did you do any fabric shopping?

    Didn't get to do any fabric shopping while here because, oddly, there just aren't any fabric shops here in Bangalore. Well, there is one, but it carries mainly just plain cottons and silks, and I was wanting to look for batiks. Guess I will have to content myself with what I can get back home!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Fun looking at them except for the scaffolding. It makes me feel sick in my stomach. LOL

    Those are wonderful pics Eddie. I would never have thought of hibiscus growing in India. the bougainvillea look great too. I wouldn't get on that scaffolding for anything. I love the trips around the world we get on this board. Thank you again!

    Love the beautiful flower pics Eddie. But the mode of transport seems a bit risky.

    Wondered where you were, the flowers are beautiful, too bad you didn't find some fabric. Thanks for the pictures.

    Thanks for posting the pics. The flowers are beautiful. I have always wanted to see India. It looks like it is a very busy place. Thanks again.

    Now I can say I've seen scaffolding worse than what we saw in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I'll have to show my husband this.
