Scenes from Indian Highways

Within the next month, I will be taking a lot of photos during our holiday in Borneo island and then in India. Mainly because of these trips, I wanted to archive the photos I had taken since November 2010, and I came across some interesting snaps that I had taken in India...

Note that these photos were taken using compact camera (Canon A540), so the quality is not great, but the scenes are unique...

Raw Bananas

The bananas were stacked near the market area, and I was told that these would be sent to the neighboring towns for sale.

Handmade knives and sickles

You can find this type of road side knife vendors on highways between Kerala and Tamil Nadu in India. I took this picture on the way from Guruvayur, (Kerala) to Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu). At another place we stopped for a short tea break and I was surprised to see small time peddlers who wrap the knifes in plastic sheets and sell...

Knife peddlers

Next to the tea shop, we saw this typical village style health drink vendor...

கம்பங்கூழ் & மோறு

Roadside vendor selling salted yogurt drink and millet porridge! Though these were the healthier options, we didn't dare to try because, these type of vendors would use tap water, which is unsafe for direct consumption.

Great photos! I am loving them. I am an expat too, we spend most of our year in Germany. So no, not as exotic as India, but still :)
Stopped over from FTLOB, have a good week!
