Just came back from what turned out to be an extended trip to Medak. The photo is of the Cathedral in Medak(Anglican in origin now run by the CSI, one of the largest in Asia.

News filtered down to even this tiny little town that a guy named Barack Obama won the American presidential election by a pretty big margin, and I did my best to educate those who were interested about American politics. of course, nobody really cares cause this happened on the same day.

Also, nobody here really cares about the financial meltdown etc. either. It’s all about the crops because right now, it’s harvest time and there’s something of a labour shortage. We were lucky that we got a few shots of standing crops, but a day later and we would have missed most of them.
