Hampi, India

Beautiful Hampi

| India

I walk around the township of Hampi, with a clear head. I was finally awake enough to see the finer details. Lining the streets was small tourist trinket shops all begging you to come into there shops. I walked straight pasted and headed for the surrounding rocks, temples and stones.

It is really hard to write about this town, so I am just going to post photographs to show you what is like. To date this is my favorite place in India. I could have stayed here for much longer, but I had to get somewhere to organize my Pakistan visa. 

In the morning the cows were herded through the city to the feild

These are a lot like the round fishing boats I saw in Vietnam

I watched this woman curl up in the shade of this stone and fall sleep… Indians can sleep anywhere

I came across this tree, it had small bags and cloth tied to the tree with stones to weight it down

And piles of stones around the base of the tree

No matter where you go in India you always find a single shoe

Another one

Everyone in the world has to do their washing, its a common thing which i love to look at.

On my second day of wondering, I got out my Ipod, listening to Indian

I actually just finished filming myself when I turned around and nearly stood on this guy. Thats before he climbed the wall!

And one more lost shoe – does the owner walk with only one on to go home?

Every morning, I would come out of my guest house to find these goat still in bed!

I walked to the top of the mountain that towers above the village. I had to be very careful as the huge pieces of stone were actually quite loose and in some places I had to climb over large bolders

On the other side, I found nice new set of stairs.

Every time i turned around I could help but gasp at the contrast between the natural stone and the carefully constructed stone stair case.

At the bottom, I found myself in this tiny path, coming around the corner I scared the living s**t out of myself and a local! 

I ended up here, in an over grown field.
