Sweep of the drive up to the hall



Many times in my researches I have arrived at a place to find it disturbingly familiar. The sweep of the drive up to the hall in this photograph aroused such powerful feelings of deja vu that I felt momentarily confused. But other times I have stopped on impulse at a village and looked around and gone back to my notes only to find that I had already visited the place five years previously.

Sometimes that feeling of deja vu can be very comforting. But these days I hardly have time to soak in a new place...let alone time for deja vu. Just airports & airplanes!

It's sometimes better to travel than to arrive Manjusha.
