As many of you know, it has taken me a number of years to have the freedom of schedule to return to India. At long last I have arrived in Chennai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, on the southeast lower corner of India.
Since many of you have not traveled to India, in this first post I will share photos of the people who are providing services to make life possible here. Indian business is very specialized. One shop will sell only batteries, another will sell only light bulbs; one vendor has only fruits, another only vegetables. This, then, provides more jobs for more people, but makes shopping rather time consuming. However in India, time (and the necessary patience to get things accomplished) is understood as infinite. There is no hurry!!
Enjoy the photos!! Please click back and forth for a larger view. Remember I would love to hear from any and all of you with your comments.
