This morning I go out to join my landlady Sushila and her daughter and our sabzi walla on the front porch to be met with “ssh, aså. måhu dekhå, aså aså” ssh, “come, look at the honey bees”.
Overnight our house has a new addition, the busy bees have built a nest! The hive or “ båsa” is probably about 2 ft across hanging from the underside of our under construction upper floor roof. Seemingly they were swarming all around when Sushila first go it up this morning but have settle down now.
I wonder how big it will get, and how long it will stay?
