I saw a big sign in a very rural are today which basically warned against the evils of drinking and driving…I have yet to be in the company of an Indian person in this area who drinks and there were few cars where we were that day…perhaps there’s a problem amongst the ridiculously overcrowded, often unroadworthy, auto rickshaw drivers that I’m not aware of that needs addressing…not wishing to belittle an important message…but I don’t think drinking and driving is the biggest threat to life on the roads in rural India!
Busy , busy, busy…rewriting lesson plans, analysing data, catching up on e- mails…did I say this was a day off?? Another rainy day…no matter where I am in the world I am constantly hearing the same thing…this weather is so unusual for this time of year.. at least here once it stops raining the sun comes out…although everywhere is very damp.
Our visitors today were a family of small black bodied spiders with enormously long legs…and we had pigs in the swampy bit at the front of the school made by our septic tank overflow…never a dull moment.
Have promised Neetu I’ll play scrabble with her this evening and I’ve got an embroidery session with the girls sometime this afternoon…(thanks to Angela for the material and silks! I’m looking forward to having a civilised hour totally unrelated to green coats or black boots)) Beginning to wonder when I’ll get time to look at the crossword.
