  • One Week In . . . 1 week ago Hello everyone – Greetings from frigid Mumbai (overnight lows of 70 F). It’s no Minnesota snowstorm but we’re staying warm with extra layers. The Indians just can’t get over how cold it is. I am enjoying the reprieve (although I will admit to bringing along a sweater in the evening lately)....
  • Our Lilongwe Year 2 Photobook 1 week ago I have to say, I’m a bit embarrassed to be posting this so long after our tour ended in Lilongwe but better late than never, right???
