October 16th: Gotta Love the Spices!

Good news!  Tommy and Denise have received their visas and are expected in India this coming Saturday.  We're so excited and wish them safe travels.

Bob has taken to leading us in a short yoga class each morning.  We find it's a great way to start the day and quite fitting considering we're in India and all.  Work on our water harvesting structure continued as usual today.  Not much to report other than that the camaraderie amongst our crew continues to build.  Although, at times it does feel like some of the villagers are giggling at us rather than with us.

This afternoon we visited the local temple and the Sahyog Sansthan office for chai, served to us by the chai walla.  We again spent the afternoon lounging in the palace courtyard, only this time rather than the expert aesthetician paying us a visit, Kim called in the best goldsmith in town.  Now that's shopping!

We ended the day with Dave and I having a spice eating contest at dinner.  Who can tolerate the most spice?  We'll find out!

Just a brief entry today but more to come.
