Boys school

A & I visited La Martiniere (, the historic boys school in Lucknow. The boys were on summer break — so A did not find a boy toy. However, we did find a couple of Tipu Sultan’s canons from our “home state” of Karnataka. Apparently after Tipu’s defeat to the British outside of Mysore, La Martinier’s patron, Major Gen Claude Martin (a Frenchmen fighting with the English… long story), ended up with these canons & brought them north. Small world, I guess…
