Signing off from Delhi
The tour was advertised as a “trip of a lifetime” and an opportunity to discover the “real” India. I think it’s safe to say that everyone has really embraced everything the country has to offer and have been suitably inspired for their next round of artworks.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff, students, tour guides and drivers for their great company and friendly manner during the visit. Touring India takes a great deal of concentration, patience and stamina, and most certainly, a strong sense of humility. I saw a lot of these qualities within the group, and it is these attributes that makes taking student groups away so worthwhile.
I hope you enjoy the imagery
Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you about the tiger safari. It’s officially three visits to the Ranthambore reserve for me – tigers seen – nil. I have now been labelled “Tiger Jinx” by the students who accompanied me into the national park, and it’s a title I really don’t want to own. On a positive note, it will give me an incentive to return to India to break my duck, sorry, tiger duck!
