Ladakh 11 Dragons and Quirky!

Doesn't need much explanation. It's a real treasure trove for the dragon hunter.

In some cases, something is definitely found in the translation

and the decorated lorries artistic gluttony is a treat.

The last few are Nek Chand's famous Rock Garden in Chandigarh, I saw the beginnings when I was there in 1978, but it now covers many acres, and in the filed of "outsider Art", i.e. untrained, he's quite renowned. The whole thing is made from broken fragments of glass bangles, china, household goods and a huge imagination. Antoni Gaudi would have been proud of him, and I think Lewis Carroll would have loved the green-eyed cat
