India Trip (Part 4)

In my last post you saw the roads to Malampuzha dam. Here are some pictures of the countryside taken on our way to the reservoir.

India Trip (Part 3)

A few of us drove bikes to visit Malampuzha dam and reservoir near Palakkad. I was sitting behind a bike to photograph the roads.  The traffic is in both directions and you can see people walking and riding cycles on the road. The houses are very close to the roads too. For foreigners it's a nightmare to drive there.
