HOLD THE SUN IN HAMPI

HOLD THE SUN IN HAMPI
Hampi, Karnataka, is not even a city, but rather a village. It is notable for the fact that several hundred years ago one of the most successful and richest empires of Indostan, called Vijayanagar, flourished on this territory. Moreover, according to legend, it was in Hampi that the monkey king, the great Hanuman, was born. Ancient monuments of architecture stand here in an incredible landscape.Giant boulders like a playful hand scattered across the valley, some giants balancing on smaller stones. It is hard to believe that nature could create such a thing. Humpy is more like a training ground for aliens who have honed their skills in telekinesis or in possession of an unknown weapon to humanity.

In Hampi beautiful sunsets. You can spend the sun on one of the rocky hills under the sound of drums and the smell of hemp, or at the temple to Hanuman himself on the top of the mountain, along with the clergy and a dozen macaques. You can also stay overnight. The local brahmans will give you a blanket, and the sun-heated stones will become a cozy bed until dawn.

RIDE ON THE BOAT ON KERALA RIVERS

Kerala is one of the greenest and most beautiful states in India. Tropical thickets are completely dotted with small rivers, along which entire houses and hotels float. In a boat called a house boat, you can take a trip from several hours to several days with full comfort and service. For your money you will be fed and courted like a raja.

After all, you can only swim away from such a ship, and the rivers in Kerala are rich in crocodiles.

EAT FROM THE PALM SHEET IN THE STAFF OF TAMIL OVER

Today in India, in addition to poverty, there is another almost insoluble problem. This is a huge amount of plastic trash. He is everywhere. Previously, when the country did not know the troubles, the British and any other roads, except waterways, all the garbage was successfully eaten by cows, goats, pigs and other domestic animals. When, in addition to organic matter, other inorganic garbage appeared, cities began to turn into landfills. Genetic memory, coupled with inertia in India, is so strong that the vast majority of the population continues to throw wrappers and packaging from everything in a row under their feet, not even thinking about the consequences. Monsoons carry all this lawlessness into the ocean, clearing the ground for a new batch of indestructible trash. Therefore, plates of palm leaves, which are still used in many southern states, are a minor help to the ecology of the country. They eat from such plates with their hands. A plate is thrown away – hands are washed. Both people are fed up and passing herbivore.
