Today marks the halfway point of my trip, can you believe it!? Here we are two months ago, still relatively fresh and clean:
In honor of making it this far, I thought I'd mention some of the things I love about this crazy and amazing place. In no particular order.
I love church.
I love the beautiful landscapes (More Buddhist ruins—they knew how to pick a spot!).
I love yellow watermelon. We only had it once, but it was great.
I love riding in rickshaws.
I love our wild neighborhood dogs. From left to right, Voldemort, Chewy, Blackie, and Paulsie (he has palsy).
I love sleepovers.
I love Big Bazaar.
I love the people (but they deserve their own post). From left to right, Raju, Durga, Suriya, Lova, Lalita.
I love the ocean.
I love my funny friends (and air conditioned cars).
I love the things we see that would be strange if we weren't in India.
I love rollerskaters on Beach Road.
I just love being here.
P.S. Mentioned, but not shown, yoga, rain/storms, CMR shopping center, saris in every color, and much more.
