With special thanks to Nancy Leung who was on the SmarTours trip with her husband Michael. Her superior camera and eye captured many of the shots here and as noted in other places in my blog.  After spending hours editing, she graciously shared them with all of us, to use as we would like.


Author: GoingPlaces Can-Do Zero Waste

I moved to McMinnville a few years ago and was impressed with its friendliness and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. I write several blogs. GoingPlacesLivingLife is my personal blog related to travel, food and just general thoughts. Can-Do Real Food tells about my business processing local produce from small farms and preserving it by canning and dehydrating. The concept of Zero Waste appeals to me because we can truly reduce what gets tossed into the landfill with very small changes in our lifestyle. Join us.

  1. Certainly India is beautiful to move around!!!!!!!… our incredible India 🙂

  2. Think this is my fave…..your friend has a great eye!

    • I had been persuaded not to bring my big camera…..but all the risk factors several people told me about never materialized. One was that monkeys were trained to steal cameras. The monkeys we saw never came close. Anyway, my pocket digital does a great job but one way it failed was a shorter zoom. Nancy had a great camera AND a great eye. It was wonderful she is willing to share them.

  3. Hope the groom was the bigger one 😀
    GREAT shots though…. one and all.

    • Yes…LOL….very typical attire. Do not know who the little guy was or if he had an official function. We did not typically see a small boy with a groom on horseback other times.

    I love my India! 🙂
