The supermercat in Andorra. Beautiful country for people who love the outdoors.
In the back streets of Kolkata they make delicious chai tea.
Exhibit one: A pot that was my parents. The plastic handle broke of years ago and I hacked on a wooden one. It wasn’t lasting….
Cross grain experiment was not strong, so I drew out one that was with the grain:
It is hot in India, and the dogs know how to relax.

What could be more adorable than a baby rhino? This was in Kaziranga National Park, north east India in 2014.
The street dogs of India…this one was near Kaziranga National Park in the Northeast corner of India.
Back in February of 2012 I visited the far north east area of India in Meghalaya. There are some amazing living root bridges, and the hike to get to them led through some tiny villages. I’ve always been fascinated with bees, and it wasn’t until a few years later that I actually started keeping bees myself, but I came across some interesting local been hives.
This one was made of a few logs hacked together:
The trip to get to them was sort of sketchy. Well, I wouldn’t really consider it sketchy, and it was fun crossing steel bridges like this:
The natural live root bridges were the coolest! Here I am striking a pose after looking at the tiny orchids growing on the bridge itself:
A little further down the road was another hive of a different style:
Far up in east India, after a long windy road, there is this monastery. It was almost to Butan…

My handlebar has been working really well, but I wanted something to protect the brake lever. So I welded on a little half moon to protect it, and threw on some black spray paint over the rust:
My cycle computer broke; they always seem to fail after a few years. This one lasted a while! 1575 miles on the ODO. Back in August of last year when I rebuilt the geared 36 wheel the computer had 694 miles. So, I’ve put nearly a 1000 miles on the frame in the past 9 months; it took me 1.5 years to get the first 700 miles…so I’ve definitely been riding it a lot more!
