Think: Can you chew what you're about to bite?

Distance seems to lose meaning in these villages by the forest and the world truly shrinks. On being asked where we could find some breakfast, The old man at the DISCO tea shop and salon pointed to the east and told us that Eappan's store in the next village should be open by the time we reach there.
What was not said, however was that there was a dense jungle between this village and the next, and that the road to there was almost non-existent.
We were asked to write a letter to the range officer at the check post seeking permission to pass, and the air was heavy with the sounds of the jungle ahead.
As the gate went up to let us through, we knew we were being watched.

the guy's calling on the Lord.
has some fruit the size of his head in his mouth.
hehe..
And Eappan's store we found.. but it had wheels, and as it was not the kind of multi purpose commercial space as DISCO hair arts, he didnt have a board.
