Day 6: Commentary on the scenery of AP

The scenery has changed. At the southern tip of Andhra Pradesh the land was pretty barren, riddled with blocks of granite and quite humid.

As we went up through the centre the barren earth gave way to swathes of green paddy fields dotted with coconut trees, and now the rice has been replaced by a hilly landscape and expanses of dry land littered with circular bales of hay.

You can however, still tell we are in Andhra Pradesh because the soil is still a deep terracotta red.

The arid wind which carries red dust through the rickshaw and the fields of brown and grey suggest that AP is not a hospitable place to be in summer.
