It serves me right!

Ever since Erin and Kara started blogging, I have been rather impatient with them when their posts are sporadic. Since I tend to check their blogs at least twice daily, hoping for new postings, I become a little exasperated when nothing new comes up. I must admit, I have on occasion suggested that they could be more consistent with their blog posting. However, today is a new day! Now that I have a blog I completely understand why they don't post every day...

I love it when there are photos to share, and so, today, I shall share some of our India experiences via photos. It is difficult to find the words to describe India. The women in their saris are beautiful and colorful; the streets are exploding with sights, sounds and smells that have you saying over and over again, "I can't believe I am seeing this!"

While driving in heavy traffic, dad and I just looked at each other and exclaimed, "Surely that can't be an elephant...on a freeway overpass?" We took this photo just as we passed them!

This is what traffic looks like on a normal day. Six or more vehicles all vying for 3 lanes of traffic! Look carefully...no one drives in their assigned lane! It seems completely crazy to me, but everyone seems to know just what to do! Not only do they make the most of the number of cars on the road, but they are also great at getting the maximum number of people in a vehicle.

One of the highlights of being in New Delhi is visiting Old Delhi. Look at the crazy conglomeration of electrical wires overhead--how would you like to be an electrician figuring this out?
This is a typical street scene in Old Delhi. Can you picture yourself pulling this load?

How about this load?

Finally, here are a couple of pictures that will forever change the way you think about ironing!

First you heat the coals!
Then you put them in the iron!

Now you are good to go!
