Hello all
I have returned home safe and sound. India was an unexpected super trip. I will start to tell my story over the holidays. It may be better reading for you this way than if I had just posted daily.

This trip was amazing. The wedding was even more. I now have a new family added to ours which has been an unexpected surprise.

We had did have couple of people in the family needed health care and we found it to be exceptional and cheap. Like an exray was about .80 cents us. Total hospital visit $10


We are already planing a return visit of about 2 months next year.

All in all a trip of a lifetime of which we hope to improve on in the future

Well we have all heard story’s about this country. Some have merit and other are bunk.

We got to Deli in the mist of a forest fire near by. My wife had purchases carbon filter masks of which we thought we would need. Never wore them once. Yes there is heavy pollution but we managed without and discomfort. India has moved much of the cars to LNG and allow only 10 year old vehicles. They need to be certified annually. The major cities are vary hazy. Outer area not bad at all

Nando this will take some time to explain. There are 36 steps in the ceremony. This done over 24 hours.

I am going to wait till we get the photos there were 11 people taking professional photos a video.
