Late Afternoon: LES VISITS MONKEY TEMPLE
We wait for our cars. Les and I poke around the toy-vendors. I pick up a photograph of a Khero painting mounted in a plexiglass box. It is of Emoinu, the Old Hearth Goddess on the back of Charamba as he carries her home to his mother. I must look for the originals. I think he is cool. A real Outsider Artist.
He wants to go for a walk. It must bug him to have to check in with me for all he does. But I can have no unpleasant episode here or I am dead meat in New York and Manipur projects will take a long breather.
I sent Les on with Teja. I heard they walked through the Monkey temple and had tea at Kalimai Hotel. That sounds like a cultural moment to me.
