The Wheels on the Bus

It has, just as I suspected been a very wild ride so far. 18 people traveling in India, all except for me first timers, is even harder than it sounds. I don't have all that much time to write, nor I have even begun to process the experience, but here is some juice rolling around in my head.

I miss the Shala (really bad)

I miss Tomas and Carol (even worse)

I miss Mike (more than I can say)

The Arabian Sea is magic. ( I was still practicing at half 4)

I finally got to "the point" (a place where the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean merge)

Akbar has a really powerful resting place

The Agra Fort should not have been skipped on my first trip

The Taj is more amazing than I remember (I did the walk of love with Tina)

Delhi is India FULL ON

Going in for a Harmonium and coming out with a roll of tape (this is a good story)

I really am grateful for coffee day

Here I am now in Rishikesh. Words can not describe this experience.

I'll be home on Friday, see you then!

Enjoy the rest of your trip! I'm just finishing a book called Holy Cow that you might enjoy if you haven't already read it. Offers a pretty hilarious, eye opening, and real experience of an Australian's experience living in India for two years.

Can't wait to hear the harmonium/tape story, should be a blast.

Seriously, I was on my way to Canada when I heard on NPR about the explosions at the market in New Delhi. Glad you are all OK.
