  • Rajasthani Adventures with Nana & Papa 3 weeks ago We were delighted to welcome our first visitors to India last week — my parents! Since all of us are working full-time, we had to jam a month’s worth of fun into a 10 day trip. Thankfully my parents have the energy of 20-somethings – it was me sneaking in daily naps! :) Get a […] The post...
  • Hanging with the Hare Krishnas! 2 months ago What do you think of when I say the words “Hare Krishnas”? Most likely, you think of orange-clad devotees singing and proselytizing in airports in the 1970’s. And yes, you’d be right. That is part of their history. But it’s just one part and honestly, I think they’ve gotten a bad rap....
  • Hitting Our Stride 2 months ago October has been such a stellar month. We’ve had three 4-day-workweeks in a row. And here’s the best part – Nia had school on 2 of the 3 days we had off of work!

I recommend this blog for the Gold. As a former FS employee who never had blogs or cell phones or skype this is the best way in the world to keep track on what is going on in the country they are living in.
