Sean and I had an amazing time in India! Some highlights:

Meeting the Singh family for lunch at their home in Agra - We loved learning about the family's jobs, hobbies, and daily life and saw beautiful pictures of their wedding. Great food and conversation. We're now Facebook friends and plan to stay in touch.

Rakesh is an ace driver and a sweet and caring person. We never felt unsafe, even as he was navigating through camels and water buffalo. When we got closer to the airport to leave, he said, "I'll miss you." We really enjoyed getting to know him. Also, all of the guides were so knowledgeable and interesting.

Nothing feels better than a dip in a gorgeous, cool, rooftop pool after a hot day of touring. The hotel in Jaipur is a great property. And don't get me started on the stellar service at the hotel in Agra (having rose petals softly rained upon you as you enter the lobby!!!).

My personal favorite experience was the bicycle rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk in Delhi. The sights, the smells of incense, fresh fruit, and spices and the excitement of not knowing what's around the next corner was exhilarating. And monkeys! I heart monkeys!

Thank you so much for introducing us to India. She is exotic, challenging, strange, funny, awe-inspiring, and colorful. Because of you, we got to know this country within a safe environment...everything was taken care of and we could sit back and soak up India. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
