Goats and Ditches

It’s been a while since I’ve reported strange sightings in India. Today was a two for one special. The first interesting event was seen when I was leaving the office to go to lunch. As soon as I walk out the door, I see a ton of goats crossing the street walking towards a grassy area for grazing. They were led across the highway and to their lunch spot by a villager, who commanded their respect by shouting and waving a stick.


Next on the list was when I was actually walking to lunch. There has been a lot of construction going on where I work, especially on the roads. Today some workers were digging ditches so that they could lay pipes down. What they neglected to think about was the fact that where they were digging, many cars were parked on the other side. Everyone who parked by a hotel now had a 2 foot deep by 1 foot wide ditch preventing them from driving their car away. I hope they weren’t in a rush.
