Halebid family with piles of beans
Seems it was the time to dry and separate beans from pods: drop the vegetation from up high, so the light stuff falls away, the heavier beans fall to the ground; repeat until just the beans are left.
On Sunday morning, Rosy and I went for a hike from Halebid, through the nearby pastoral areas and villages. The area appears extremely fertile, with coconut trees, cabbage patches, tomatoes, potatoes, green bean, some sort of lentil/bean, sugarcane, rice paddies, and other produce we couldn’t identify.
We climbed up several hills, each of which is topped with a temple, so there is a system of trails of sorts, and we didn't feel we were trespassing on private property.
The Sunday afternoon bus rides back to Mysore were peaceful idyllic uneventful, my favorite way to travel.
