I took a pre-dawn hike. With considerable disapproval from the hotel staff-- but this is India and I was determined to see the sun rise from a hill.
Not great luck with the pics of a sunrise, bad vantage. (shots are of the hotel, my view from a hill, a laborer and the doorman)
and the food! This morning the requisite porridge, fried tomatoes and steamed vegetable root. Olives and chicken sausage added on for pizazz.
and the Language! this AM in the Times of India several instances of "upgradation". A useful word, I think (Tata Motors knows that the brands, that operate in developed markets and compete with some of the best in world, need constant upgradation, on engines, model facelifts. )
We leave for the tradeshow at 10AM -- i'll work to add updates as the day goes on.
