india trip

back from india

As many of you know, I went to India for two weeks this summer at the end of July.  There is so much I could say about it, but it was a spectacular and fabulous and amazing and wonderful and fun trip.  I am so glad I was able to go, and to experience another culture.  We visited Delhi,  Udaipur in Rajasthan,  Mumbai, and Kerala.

^ Sharlena and I before a day in Delhi

^ We were given leis everywhere we went.  It was such fun.

^ Intense bike ride through the muddy water

^ The foursome.

^ We drank – and brushed our teeth with – so many of this big water bottles

^ The group in front of the gates to the President’s Palace

^ Clara

^ Singing in front of the India Gate in Delhi

^ There was a really big group of people watching us

^ Awesome bag and shoes that I got when we went shopping.  Bartering is fun.

Well, that was only Delhi.  And only some of it.  A small some.  But, more will come later.

And, I would say that this trip was, indeed, life-changing.

recently:

^ Mom and Dad’s 25th anniversary! (June 1)

^ With friends (the Powells, Meghan, and Reuben) for a surprise anniversary party for Mom and Dad

^ Sicilian orange ice cream at Braum’s

^ India Team group picture

And, I’ve started a summer job, being a swim instructor at the city pool.  It’s been fun so far, and I’m quite tan (and somewhat sunburned) after four days of being out all morning. Also, Clara and I now have a cell phone that we’re sharing.  It’s rather exciting and fun.
