Lindsey came to visit! It was just the greatest time. We went to breweries, rode horses, visited animals, paddled the hooch, and lived the life we dream of together!

Lindsey: the animal whisperer
but he's so cute

Wish it could last forever!

friday market

On Fridays, there is a market in Nargol. Villagers dress their best to make for a most colorful and vibrant little market. It's beautiful!

beach days

After several days in Mumbai and Puna filled with dinner parties, site seeing, squash, and reading, I tagged along with Imti and friends and family to the beach house in Nargol. It was magical. It was there that I had some of the best meals of my life in an epic home. I can only hope to ever get invited back to such a place. Only horses in the now empty stalls could have made it better. 

the largest tide I have ever seen

The week was spent stuffing our faces, taking long walks on the nearly private beach, playing games in the sand, and kicking up our feet. One for the books!

From Bangkok, Nate left for home to return to school while I milked my unemployed days and ventured to India - both top and bottom on my list. I'd heard so many mixed reviews but figured now was a great a time as any! So leave it to Imti to hook me up with an awesome trip that began in Mumbai with his most lovely family.

i like to ride my bicycle

Us three musketeers ventured out for a miscalculated bike ride. We found some overrated "hot springs" and some beautiful lake side resorts. Seeing as how lazy we are, we opted to hire a little guy to boat us and our bikes to the other side of the river. Turned out to be a beautiful day out on the water. 

don't be deceived. that's petrol, not water
