Unexpected Travel Memories

I enjoy remembering the unexpected visual images of past travels. The stone wall of this ancient fort north of New Delhi, was stunning. Come along on this journey of the unexpected.

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.”  D. H. Lawrence
