I am sorry that the peacock at Govinda's was resting on its perch and not patrolling the grounds when I was last there. Often visitors get to enjoy the stunning display of this fellow's spectacular tail as he strolls around and shows off.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
