february in india.

we just got back from a brilliant trip to india. though i've been to some breathtaking places(ajanta & ellora caves, taj mahal, nagarjuna sagar), guntur and hyderabad have always been homebase when i've been india. so, it was a completely different experience to travel from city to city and stay in nice hotels. i was so happy to be experiencing india in a new light with david. while i think he enjoyed every part of the trip, the food was a highlight for him. the indian chinese meals were my favorite (dear gobi manchurian, i love you). aside from the food, seeing family, masala tea, the kerala houseboat, the luxurious udaivilas, the amber fort, and the intoxicating taj mahal were all highlights. i'd highly recommend our itinerary! if you'd like to see our pictures, please visit david's flickr set. thanks to him, our trip was incredibly well documented!
