Half Way


You know you been in India for a bit when while walking to predawn practice you see a big fat pig and an Indian guy jogging and the one that looks really out of place is the jogging man! Mike and I are learning how to make dosa’s today. They are like really yummy crepes that are traditionally served as breakfast with a curry broth and coconut chutney, which is addictive. We will be having dosa parties when we get back to the states. We have two more weeks left in Mysore, I am now getting why people spend three months at a time here. I think next year we will spend two. I can feel my mother cringing at that thought. Mike and I have been thinking about what we can “take away” from this experience. We both have been considering our consumption and how we can begin to curtail some things. I saw this image of Durga yesterday while Mike was haggling at the market. I hope you all enjoy. Love 108 times!!!

Jill, I wish you would have taken a picture of the man and the pig jogging down the road, that would have been a sight to see. We all miss you and can't wait until you get home.

Love Aunt MJ

Dear Jill and Mike, Yes the thought of next you will kill me. Although you could bring me along. A pig jogging probably resembles many people i know jogging - namely self. The food does sound very tempting. Hopefully we will all taste, see and hear all about the journey. I have been practicing the 108 to aid in the anxiety of your trip. Love and Miss you mom
