Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The emerald buddha itself is a little disappointing given that it’s well, very very small! A bit like when you see the Manneken Pis the first time。

Jim Thompson Museum

All my respect to Jim Thompson. He has done extraordinary work to preserve and share Thai culture to the people. Very disconcerting how he disappeared from the face of the earth…

6か月のサバティカル休暇を取って旅行している次男、3か月のインド旅行を終えてタイに移動。

Bangkok, Thailand. The moment I set foot on the airport I instantly felt that Thailand is going to have a different vibe than India. Looking out from the window of the metro as I was heading to my hostel, the scenery looked very familiar. I remember now, it’s similar to the other newly industrialised asian cities such as Shanghai and Hong Kong, that I had previously visited. Skyscrapers, department stores, modern public transport, digital bill boards, hoards of people running left and right, convenience stores…

After 3 months in India I was excited to arrive to a new country and go exploring. The ultra convenient services of Thailand, like 24 hour shops and coin laundries, were also very welcome. as it made my life as a backpacker a hell of a lot easier!

Street

Metro from the airport to the centre of Bangkok. I started chatting to a guy from Pondicherry who was an english teacher. He is the guy on the far right in the photo.

I left Alleppey to Kochin to catch my flight to Delhi, last stop before I left to Thailand. My time in India was coming to an end so I felt that the most appropriate way to end it was to visit Gandhi’s memorial. Utter respect for this man!

India was long in my list of countries to visit and I wanted to do it justice by having the time. It has been a spectacular adventure to visit this enormous and rich country full of life, colour, scenery, sound and smells. I know that I have only scrapped the tip of the iceberg so I know that I will be coming back for more!

Wildlife Sanctuary

One of the key sites of the area is the animal sanctuary where you can go for different hikes with a ranger as your guide. The animals roam wildly so that is the reason why to go with a ranger. The sanctuary is located in a national forest with luscious green vegetation and waterfalls. Despite attempting to reach the park early, my journey to get there took 2 hrs as the main bridge to get there had crumbled during the flooding. That unfortunately meant that I missed the early morning window where all animals, such as elephants, go to the river to drink. Oh well, at least I got to see a real cobra!

しばらく連絡がなかったので心配しましたが、元気に旅行を続けているようです。

After a week of chilling out in Goa, I eagerly took my next flight to go to Cochin. It was time to visit the region of Kerala, known for its beautiful scenery.

The road to Munnar was bumpy, unstable and muddy. You could clearly see in places the reminiscence of the floods that took place a month ago. Entire trees yanked out of their roots and mountains of mud on the side road. This however did not distract me from the amazing scenery. I had not seen anything like it in India so far. Hopefully the photos will do justice to it!

Munnar town itself is not much to report back on but the surroundings are absolutely stunning. The tropical vegetation and the stunning tea plantations that are omnipresent are simply incredible. I knew instantly that the only way to enjoy this area was to rent a motorcycle and go out exploring. I had been waiting for an opportunity to rent the legendary Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle and this was it. The bike did not disappoint!

The most expensive private residence in the world worth 1 billion dollars inhabited by a family of 7 persons with around 350 workers. Mumbai is a city of contrasts…

Mumbai – Dharavi Slums

Having done the tour, my definition of a slum completely changed, at least for the Dharavi one. Dharavi can be split into 2 areas, business and residential.

Business thrives in Dharavi and according to the guide the business generated out of it is worth millions of dollars! Examples of business are plastic and metal recycling, textile production linked to leather and other materials. Despite the high business activity the working conditions are not exactly great. People work long shifts, 12 to 14 hrs under dangerous conditions.

The residential area. The first thing you need to know is that 1 million persons live in 2 square kilometers! Having seen where they live I now understand how this is possible. The streets between the houses are extremely narrow and the access to the multi story residences are via a ladder and not stairs. Hygene is not always the best. However this is not the full story as this applies only to part of Dharavi. There are areas, where the first residences were first built, that are spacious, clean and charming with doctors and lawyers living there. Apparently some of the houses are valued at 1 million dollars! This is due to its strategic location, the airport being near and being in the center of Mumbai.

Another particularity of the slum is the way it is grouped. It is not by class/cast, religion or race but by language. The linguistic clusters are hindi, marathi and tamil. Integration takes place between the different communities so long as you speak the language. There are around 6 public schools where the residents can access freely. Part of the tour was to visit one of them.


Entrance to the slum area. No photos are allowed inside out of respect.

次男のインド旅行32 Goa

6か月のサバティカル休暇を取ってインドを旅行している次男からの写真です。
一緒に楽しんでいただければと思います。

しばらく連絡がなかったので心配していましたが、元気そうで安心しました。

Interesting phenomena in Goa is how the visitors concentrate in specific geographical areas. In the north around Arambol you have Russians, Vagator you have the Indians, Anjuna and below Vasco da Gama the Europeans. In the area of Arambol I was amazed how all signs were written in Russian and the bar waiters spoke perfect Russian (or so it sounded to me). Incredible!

The visit to the spice plantation was a great highlight. Seeing the spices used in Indian cooking in its natural habitat was very educational especially if you are a city boy like me.

I will always remember this place for its delicious sandwich and the honesty of the owner. After finishing the meal, I paid the bill and the owner did not have any change so I told him that it was not an issue and he could keep it as we had enjoyed so much the meal (we are talking of 30 rupees = 38 cents). However he insisted and asked me where I was staying and whether I would be around tomorrow. I told him that we would be leaving tomorrow so probably not. Next morning, having forgotten about the whole thing, as we were walking from the guest house towards the bus stop, the owner out of nowhere arrived with his scooter, greeted me and gave me the 30 rupees! I was blown away by the genuineness and honesty of this man!
