Formerly known as Six Months in Hyderabad now with pictures from all over the planet.
Our Dutch friend Hans-Peter arrived on the day of the Holi festival when people paint and splash each other with coloured water.
After some sightseeing in Hyderabad, we flew to Mumbai (above: the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus).

After another day in Hyderabad, Douwe and HP traveled to the Andaman Islands (photo by HP)
and to Mamallapuram (see earlier post), making the most out of six days in India.
This time with Douwe's parents.
And dolphins. (There's a baby dolphin in the middle.)
The shells are perfect: pretty to look at but so small and yielding that they don't hurt your bare feet.
Sandpiper (not sure which kind)

Evening stroll with buffalo.
This buffalo preferred to enjoy the water without a leash and made a dash for it.
These fish weren't so lucky.
