My early morning visit to my drivers temple turned into a safari trip. Monkeys, huge mungo, big parrots, peacocks, goats, buffaloes, horses, mules, camels, birds of all kinds, nilgais, cows, snakes, toads and I’m pretty sure I have missed something but still you get the picture….amazing morning and it was only me and Pawan and the guys living at the temple. Seemed like the Gods knew this was my last visit so they really wanted to show me all the beautiful living creatures out here.
I think we saw more than 150 peacocks and peahens but first time I saw so many dancing at one time.
it’s really a jungle temple
magnificent banyan tree with all its hanging aerial roots
summer here means that trees drop their leaves
a nilgai family
I know not sharp but I just had to show the beautiful colours they have..
goats eat everything….
all of a sudden we spotted two snakes but they where to fast for me..but what a morning it was. The Gods did everything they could to give me a nice last visit and for that I’m truly grateful.

today the monkey on my kitchen balcony was back and he almost scared me to death…you see it’s not really what I expect to find staring at me when I walk into my kitchen which is on the 20th floor….
the sneaky little thing, well, quite big for being a monkey started to try and open my windows and when that didn’t work he tried the door !!! I’m so happy that it was locked…I did stand there and held the door though…just in case !
they are so smart….he tried the knob and everything else he could think of….
when he didn’t succeed he just had a moment….a looooooong moment, like 15 minutes long…..
“I can see you and I know you’ve got goodies in there”
a monkeys view from the 20th floor…
“she called security so I better climb to someone else’s balcony” and off he went.
