We Are Off to India!

Dear Blog Friends,


My husband and I are leaving Thursday, February 3rd, for a two-week trip to India. We'll return on Saturday, February 18th. We'll have limited access to the Internet while we are there, so I won't be blogging again until we return. But I will be taking lots of notes to share when we get back. I love India, and when I'm there, I can never get enough of it. I hope you will check back after the 18th. 


Meanwhile, below are some posts you might like to read from an earlier trip we took two years ago. We went for two reasons: a long overdue visit with my husband's family, and his Golden Jubilee Class Reunion with his classmates from engineering college. Oh, what a great time we had! (We've taken earlier trips, too; but, alas, I wasn't blogging then, so all those notes are in notebooks in the filing cabinet.)


If you do click on these posts from two years ago, please comment, because I'll love to read your feedback when I return. Here they are:


Ah, India -- Where to Begin?
Blessed by an Elephant
The Reunion—First Day
Education and the Gift that Keeps on Giving
More About the Trip
Pongal and an Eclipse
Traffic in Chennai
The Food of South India


Meanwhile, do check back after February 18th; I have book reviews planned and updated blogs about this trip. Ciao for now.

Just saw your smiling face and comment on my next to last post. Glad you liked the excerpt from my novella. And I'm just SO eager to hear about your wonderful trip. I'm now going to follow your links that will take me there - it's the only way I'll ever get to India!

My daughter and I once had an amazing Sikh from India who lived for a time with us, when I was married to the second husband. This was in northern Virginia. Gurdeep. He had magic fingers. Did deep massage therapy all over my daughter's body. He wanted to see her walk, but alas it was not to be. But I learned much from him about India, especially the food. He is now back in his native country, and haven't heard from him since 1993.
