A Tale of a Rock and a Pushta

If you have been following this blog, you may remember a shot of a giant rock that fell onto Tehri Road during the monsoon. There is also a spot on the New Road where a huge landslide took out a section of road and the pushta is being rebuilt. These two elements have come together, as the giant rock has been broken up to provide more stones to finish the pushta.

Nothing much happened at either place during the past week, with the Diwali holidays taking up everyone's attention. We may not be here for the final completion of the pushta.

Our daughter and son-in-law arrived in Delhi late last night. Dan will be bringing them up by train on Monday. I'm really looking forward to seeing them and showing them around!
