The day so far has been oppressive with high humidity...till now...it took just a few minutes to darken, the horizon had a 'touch of ink', not a storm, not a torrential downpour but it's drizzling now. Went out early in the morning, before breakfast, but the heat and humidity proved prohibitive since.... but the late afternoon holds promise and we can go out for a pleasant evening before we leave tomorrow morning. Amidst all these 'extraterrestrial games', someone was happy as a clam (seaside simile) with her after-lunch dessert of fruit custard.

Didn’t bother to color- or contrast-correct these 10 photos from Tharangambadi, formerly Tranquebar. Did you know the Danes had colonial holdings? Me neither. But here you go. Or, really: Here I go. Bit of a sorry state the place is in. It’s a pity; the location is beautiful.
