And here's a link to my Kerala Cruise story in OUTLOOK TRAVELLER. It'll fill in the details in the background of the sketches I posted here. I am sure there are many more pictures in the print-version than there are on-line, so it may be worth hunting down a copy and buying/borrowing it.
I meanwhile, am ELSEWHERE. I've just spent the past ten days working at a print-making studio and living as a guest in a most charming apartment but there's a reason why I'm not revealing where I am -- and of course the reason cannot be revealed either! Sometimes I think I missed my calling, which was to be an undercover agent. I am constantly trying to cover my tracks in case ... well ... in case I'm discovered by friends who might have thought I was elsewhere. It's got to the point where I have NO friends, ANYWHERE mainly because I spend so much of my time ducking out of sight. Ah well. C'est la vie. Or ma vie, at any rate
