Travelling in India can be exhausting
and sometimes boring.
Sitting on hard cramped seats for hours,
very little rest and no prospect
of good food for a long while.
Arriving in Coonoor Town
tired and sweaty, was one such journey.
We were standing on the bridge over the river,
and as the sun was going down
it lit up the town and shacks
on the opposite bank.
Although not a traditionally beautiful view,
there was a defiance that said
- this is how we live.
