I greeted 2012 at a friend’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad. A few of us went there on the afternoon of the 31st and spent the next twenty-four hours dozing, drinking, dancing and grilling food by the bonfire. We even took a tractor ride! Unlike some (most?) farmhouses in the country which are farmhouses only in name, this one actually has serious farming going on. There are large open fields and some great landscapes. Which is all the excuse my camera needed.
