Hello everyone, some 5 weeks ago my wife and i went on a round trip of central and south India, due to the corona crisis we stranded half way in a little village called Rohet. My initial plan was to look for classic cameras and small camera businesses around India, but so far I haven't found much of interest. On top of that we are now "locked up" in our luxury hotel in the middle of nowhere. The Belgium embassy told us over the phone their trying to get us out, but it is unlikely this will be happening in the next 14 days. Anyway just to let you all now i wont be posting much in the coming days (weeks ?) but i will have some material ready to publish whenever i'll get home. Hope you all are safe and in good health regards Francois !

Thanks to a lot of help from local indian people, the Belgium embassy in Dehli and the foreign affairs office we manged to get back home. Now 14 days of quarantine wich will allow me to sort out all the photo's i've made in india,work in the garden and sort out some boxes of cameras...
Glad to know you made it back. These are sad times to be stranded away from home.
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land! Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d, As home his footsteps he hath turn’d, From wandering on a foreign strand! Sir Walter Scott
