Another India (32)

From my balcony in Cochin.

A woman sits there now, perhaps on her phone, browsing Instagram. A tropical storm comes rumbling in from the Arabian Sea, the hot salty air sticking to her moist skin. Mosquitos irritate her ankles, but she seems unperturbed. Reaching for her bottle of beer, she looks up. Does she see it? Is it all still arranged like this, just as I photographed?
