  1. Siesta is very important for the well being of people. In India it is part of the culture.

  2. I was asked by a PM, how long I stayed in India... Well I was there for 29 days and honestly, I wouldn't mind staying for a year or more!

    I am definitely going back though! :wink:
     
  3. Another wonderful set, Panos. I probably won't visit India in the coming future so thanks for the photo tour.
     
  4. Thank you Phil :smile: I probably visit India again in 2009, right after my China adventure in 2008 :wink:
     
  5. Also a nice and interesting series. Reading after lunch? Impressive! Guess I would be rather the nap taking one. :rolleyes:
