STILL AWAY

I was in wilderness, back to wilderness of shopping malls and traffic for a day, I am Kannur, Kerala, No net or phones all these days, going back to wilderness of trees and animals. Last night I had an amazing experience of watching 'THEYYAM' at a temple at Taliserry, Overwhelmed at the help and kindness of people whom I hardly know, this is what you get in kerala apart from some terrific food. Don't know when I'll get back home, perhaps on wednesday when I run out of money ?? Tol you me goin one way ticket ?? I have lots of pictures for you and I'll reply to all the comments once I gt back, have to catch up some sleep, by the way I love the traffic, sounds nice after a long time
All my love to all of you.
please take care of yourself.

Oh !
Cannanore..... and I was there till 16th February morning. I wish I had known you were there. Our paths could have actaully crossed.
Last I heard you were heading to Ranganthittu, and I thought after that you were back in the CSSR.
If you are passing through Cochin, let me know.

Look forward to some Cannanore photos. Am putting some on my LJ.

It's snowing right now here. Very slightly though. You can barely see it, but hopefully it'll increase.

Take good care, Rauf!
