The occasional visitor here is unbelieving when I say things are unusually quiet today. Where are those famous trucks? And those wild parties next door where women pretend to be Basantis and the men twirl their mustaches? What of those choppers slicing the air and the politicians whose convoys honk at and scatter the stray dogs in their path?
They're all there. Just not on a day when these creatures were around. Just not today.
Ludwig, help out with exact taxonomies. I have a vague idea they're bee-eaters or sun birds or something.
