    Absolutely amazing!! It seems so strange at the same time -we live in a place where buildings are no more than 30, 40, 50 years old. We have no culture like what you see in some of your pictures. That’s what always amazes me when traveling – richness in culture.

    How old is Poutine? 🙂

    Excellent pictures!
    Sarah, I’ve dreamed of seeing India for years. Drove my parents nuts watching Hindi films that played on Sunday mornings on cable tv! LOL
    Now I can live vicariously through you! It would be so AMAZING to be in the Ganges where it meets glacier waters.
    Bravo for you and Brett! Can’t wait to read the rest of your entries.

    PS – Did you buy a sari?

      Thanks Chelsey! I tried on saris but couldn’t walk! Bought a traditional outfit from the south which is a long skirt, a Chole (belly top) and shawl, got lots of bobs of approval from the local ladies.
