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?

I got back to Bhagsu after my friends left back to Israel. One evening, returning by foot from near by town of McLaud Ganj, I noticed a group of Sikhs having a tailgate party in a parking lot. The hatch of their trunk flew open and the Bhangra music was filling the air. As I walked by on the road climbing to my lodge, they called me up to join. I smiled and came closer, they poured me scotch and coke they had with them and soon enough I was dancing and hugging Enjoying new friends and an unexpected experience.

A few days earlier, at Amritsar, my Israeli friends daughter got similar attention from another young Punjubi man. Here's the story:
