Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

India sits on it's own tactile plate. It was last to collide and join Asia.

Time is still a non issue in India. I traveled throug India for a year with no watch or mobile phone to tell the time and it felt quite in pace with others.

Just as an escalator passenger ready to sync his speed and start walking again at the junction with the next floor, the only time I felt the colission of different time plates was trying to catch my plane back home.

The train was late by 1 hour, as often happens in India, but the foreign airline was on western time...

That was a whole story that could make it into an action movie script.

Eventually I arrived at the Mumbai International airport door 25 minutes before take off. As the Indian phrase says "Sub Kutch Milega" (everything is possible), we got an OK from the pilot on the intercom and I ended up running with the hostess all through the airport to step into the plane 5 minutes before take departure.

This photo was taken in my ashram room in a town in Kerala a couple of weeks before the end of 1 year backpacking rural India. All these items were packed and shipped in a parcel wrapped in a white Doti (fabric on the left) with lots of colorful stamps (bottom right) arranged in India's continent shape (too much work :)...

Oh.. and the clock: it is up on the wall in my parents' living room in Israel.
