Cycling and a holly man in Keoladeo Ghana National Park, Rajastan, India

Although it’s misty this morning we stop at Keoladeo Ghana National Park. We grab breakfast and head in. I opt for renting a bike, rather than taking a rickshaw. I’m keen to be under my own direction for a while.

The bike is a bit dilapidated, but it’s nice to be riding. I stumble upon Libbey and we stop at a Hindu temple. The Sadhu there is a friendly guy and shows us around the temples and his kitchen. He has a spotted deer called Krishna, who we feed with biscuits that he gives us. Krishna has two folls, the youngest being just 10 days old. The Sadhu gives us his address and asks us to send him some photos, which I will definitely do.

I spend an hour or so cruising around the park. I spend a while by a peaceful lake. A number of fish and turtles feed from the surface. Sitting here reminds me of fishing with my Dad when I was a kid. I wish we still did that. Perhaps we can over the next few years, especially with my nephew.
