graffiti @ Rishikesh
This must probably be my fifth or sixth visit to the little town. Caught sight of this big-eyed happy tomato trying to eat spaghetti on the walls of Rishikesh not far from the Laxman Jhulla. It was a sunny day and the sunny colours of the graffiti echoed it. The graffiti is signed ‘Bianca Wolff, Australia, EW 15’. Someone sure left her mark!
