A Passage to India

Today I’m visiting Gerri Bowen and talking about one of my favorite topics—travel. I’m spotlighting one of my favorite destinations, which is India.

Here are a few photos to get you in the mood.

India - Mysore

This colorful character with the big knife is in Mysore, India.

India -Khajuraho

This is one of the temples at Khajuraho. It’s fascinating to wander around and study the reliefs at close quarters. The temples are known for their erotica—many of the figures are in erotic positions worthy of the kama sutra. Sex education? No one is really sure of their purpose, but they’re certainly interesting.

India - Amritsar

This is the Golden Temple at Amritsar, the holiest shrine for Sikhs. I found our visit here very interesting and the temple was beautiful.

India - Pushka

This is me and hubby at a Pushkar cafe. You can see the lake in the background and the pigeons and monkeys on the temple. I’m looking pretty skinny here. I’d had stomach problems for a couple of weeks and had malaria, although I didn’t know it at the time.

Despite this, I have a heap of great memories of India. We’ve visited twice – the second time for three months where I remained healthy the entire time.

I hope you’ll pop over to Gerri’s blog and say hello.

      I’ve been pretty lucky with my health mostly, but the malaria kicked my butt.

    How impressive… I visited India many years ago and it was an amazing place. Has to be visited to really understand what that means:)

      Totally true. You don’t understand the country until you’ve been there.
