The Lotus Eaters

‘On the day when the lotus bloomed, alas, my mind was straying, and I knew it not.’
The Lotus – by Rabindranath Tagore.

I think I may have managed to miss lotus season by about two weeks, very annoyed with myself I have been searching the side of the roads with my trusty tuk tuk driver Vuthy as I have been keen to get some shots of the giant breed. On the way back from Ruluos yesterday, in the last light, we found a few, waiting.

Breaking open the seed head we tasted them, the small seed within a seed almost opaque and sweet. Here’s to the lotus eaters!
