India so far...


So this is India. Alex and Alfonso took us out to a really nice Indian restaurant last night...it actually felt like we were in Atlanta...being at a nice rooftop restaurant. But the unfortunate reality is that India has a very different side...extreme poverty. Today we walked around with Alfonso and rode on the autorickshaws through Pune (pronounced Poona)...the photos do not depict just how unbelievable it is to walk down the streets here. It feels literally like stepping into another world. The people are very kind and very friendly...or at least the ones we have met so far. It is quite hectic here to say the least. Tomorrow we fly to Bangalore...
