Week in photos

I thought it would be nice to recap my transition from the US to India. Because I am sure I will posting so many more photos, this will probably be my last "week in photos" until I return.

I spent every morning before yoga with the peanut and my sister. He's going through a shy phase, maybe because his molars are coming in and he's not feeling quite himself. Hopefully he won't completely forget me over the next 7 weeks. Tingaling, let's Skype!

On Tuesday I chopped off my hair. This has definitely made the bucket shower (more later) much easier!

Saying goodbye to my babes was the most difficult part of the trip. Luckily he will be here in about a month!

The time during my travel was a bit fuzzy. I took Luftansa from IAH to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Bangalore. This photo is from the 2nd leg.

I am so accustomed to using my Amex to pay for things in the States that I almost never carry cash ("I have no money!"). Here in India everything is done in rupees. These are the shala fees, probably the most expensive part of the trip.

The fields along the way to the shala from Rachel's house.

Rickshaws! These are the most common methods of transportation for long-ish distances for people without a car or scooter.

Yes, let's Skype. Maybe Wed (or after) - as we don't have too much going on the latter part of the week. Don't worry, JJ won't forget you - he looks at the pic of you and him all the time!

I can't wait to see more pics! My BF has been to Bangalore before but he had an experience he'll never forget (unfortunately not in a good way) - I want to see how foreign-ly fantastic India is!

You look beautiful! These are great pictures, I can't wait to see more from your trip. Those rickshaws look scary though - but then again, I'm a huge chicken. :)
