Travels

Have updated http://xsynthesisx.org.uk/ slightly with a new intro photo that was taken in India, on the path up to a waterfall in a nature conservation area of Wayanad. At the bottom of the path was a tree with a wall around it because it was worshiped as a god. I saw indigenous folks in Wayanad too. Our guide said, "There - wild elephant, there - wild man". He had a good sense of humour. Indigenous folks were living in the nature reserves and we saw lots of the men out collecting wood and doing conservation work. They lived in non-traditional concrete houses that the state government built so they wouldn't be trampled by elephants. We saw a wild elephant swimming.
