Two weeks

I have officially been in India for two weeks now. So far I have experienced a myriad of emotions: joy, happiness, doubt, fear, loneliness, contentment, impatience, patience...all over the place! Overall I can see why yogis continue to return here...something about practicing in the shala with Sharath and photos of Guruji smiling on you, hearing all the other students around you pushing themselves, breathing with sound...the whole thing is just somthing special.

I am currently blogging from Santosha's, a great breakfast place with free wi-fi. I think I will be uploading photos here in the morning from now on, instead of getting frustrated with my connection. I am enjoying some chai, fruit salad and banana carrot & beetroot bread with ghee. Delish!

Yesterday I met some girls at an "Italian" restaurant and had some pizza!

I haven't been craving Western food just yet, but I will admit, it was a nice change.

Glad to hear you found a good breakfast place! The food there sounds great too.

Hooray for finding a good place to go in the mornings. Everything looks so rich and colorful in your photos.

(Also I'm totally jealous of the warm weather you're experiencing! Gah rain!)

I love Indian food, especially the real stuff... I wouldn't be craving Western food either.

I can't believe you've been gone for 2 weeks already! It seems to have flown by!
