India – Udaipur (Early-Mid June, 2011)

Udaipur was a really nice place.  Our accommodation was absolutely beautiful!  A good place to relax. Driving to Udaipur was a bit of an adventure.  It was very rural, kind of hilly, and at times, I wondered if the old beast of a bus was going to make it up to the top. Stopped at … Continue reading India – Udaipur (Early-Mid June, 2011)

India – Bundi (Early-Mid June, 2011)

I did a horrible job blogging about India.  But that's ok!  I had to learn somehow! Anyway, going forward, my posts will be mostly pictures with some commentary here and there based on what I remember. We stopped for lunch somewhere midway between Jaipur and Bundi.  There was a pond nearby with...well, as you can … Continue reading India – Bundi (Early-Mid June, 2011)

India – Delhi to Jaipur

When: May 27th, 2011. I never published a post about the trip from Delhi to Jaipur... so this is a new post from pictures and what I remember.

India – Tour Day

Tour day... Originally published May 24th, 2011 Today we went to see a beautiful tomb (Humayun's Tomb), a garden, Khan market, and a stepwell. Unfortunately, my camera died so I personally did not get pictures of the first step well.

India – First Day of the Program

First day of the course... Originally published: May 23rd, 2011 Oh boy, how to begin describing this day.... Trying. We got up a little late and went to breakfast.  Not many choices... and their ketchup (for me at least) was quite spicy.  Then we had the scavenger hunt... a bit of a waste of time. … Continue reading India – First Day of the Program

Traveling to India

Arrival Originally published: May 22, 2011 Additional thoughts and comments that I write and add in the present (meaning as I update and re-publish) will be italicized. The flight to India was really long. I'm pretty sure it was a direct flight from Newark, New Jersey to New Delhi.  Not sure why but I recall … Continue reading Traveling to India


Graduation & Preparation Originally published: May 18th, 2011 It is hard to believe how fast 4 years of school went - although it didn't seem so fast while in the thick of it all. Graduation was fantastic - and this trip will be a great finish to college. Still trying to think up a topic … Continue reading Graduation!!

India – Picture Topic

Picture Topic? Originally published: May 11th, 2011. For this trip, we have to keep a picture journal - and we have to choose some object of daily life (a color, an animal, architecture, anything) to take a daily photo of.  I am at a loss at what to photograph.  I was thinking architectural arches...  but … Continue reading India – Picture Topic
