After landing, and not sleeping at all on the 20 hours of flying we all pretty much went straight to bed. In the morning we went to this hindu temple, no photos allowed inside but it was pretty amazing. Lots of beautiful sculptures and gods.
Then onto a mosque... with a camera fee... not a one time fee like I thought, but for each camera you brought in... which means 4 for me and $15. Not worth it.
We took a rickshaw ride around and got stopped when about 20 bicycles fell over in a huge pile. So many wires tangled overhead it's impressive the whole city hasn't burned to the ground.
rickshaw school bus
Old stuff, more temples in a park and a lazy pooch
A Sikh temple, you have to cover your head and be barefoot, also must wash your feet on the way in.
In packing I somehow forgot half my underwear and socks... did laundry before the trip really got underway. After ringing out one of my undershirts it somehow stretched to 8 times its original size............
Epic breakfast buffet of unidentifiable things. This is a Pokemon cutlet, I swear.

Sara, my family, and I just returned from two weeks in India...
We had a full day and a half in New York on the way, arrived at 6am and got rolling to Central Park and the Natural History Museum. We rode the Staten Island ferry that night. Pretty amazing city.
A guy India-bound had this amazing rip-off duffel bag... a reebok robocop mashup. There was also 3 American federal agents escorting a Sri Lankan very terrorist looking guy back home on our flight... he wore a devious smile the whole time while the feds chatted up the stewardesses. Sketchy.
14 hours later we would be in India... The bad news is that the in flight entertainment and movies is not working... but in truth Air India didn't pay the bill for the rights to the movies so they can't show them. It begins!
