Namaste Jig

There is so much to tell you and very little time in which to do it. We are into the 6th day of our trip and have toured New and Old Delhi. With the help of a translator I was able to spend a full afternoon in the street markets of Old Delhi and can't tell you how much I enjoyed it. The sites and sounds and smells of the old city are intoxicating and an experience I'll never forget. We had two lectures while in Delhi. One was about the comparative religions of India and the other about the life and philosophy of Ghandi. We have been dinner guests in two Indian homes and I've completed a cooking lesson in the breads of India. We are heading to Agra. I hope to report more from there. I hope you are all well. Blessings...Mary
