I do not understand why Google Maps can never give me proper directions from my house in Texas to the Houston Museum of Natural History (it doesn’t understand traffic around Hermann Circle), but can find anything in rural India.  We have learned that when Google says there is a road, there is a road, even if it looks like this:


The one below is better since it has a remnant of having been paved!

Here is a sample of what Google doesn’t put on their maps and that we found yesterday on our little road trip.

A variety of modes of transport: trains (station), trucks, tuk tuks and two wheelers and lots of smiles and waves (click to enlarge pictures).

Monkeys, all seven of them.  If you are only seeing five, you’re missing the one on the tree and the other on the motorcycle on the right.

And a kid so happy to see us that he danced!
