Every day is a day of discovery. Early morning walks in our neighborhood provide glimpses into daily life of the village and people that surround us.
Our neighborhood is a conglomeration of medium-sized villages shot through with veins of modernism. While many people carry a cell phone and browse the internet; families still carry water home from water spigots (faucets) on the street corner, do their laundry in buckets, and hang it to dry wherever there is space.
Photos convey the sights - but the sounds and smells have to be experienced first hand.
