What an amazing place!

There is such contrary in India – of peacefulness and  busy streets and markets, beautiful scenery and open sewers, lavish temples and shacks/tents. The people are warm and friendly. I am adjusting to life in the Ashram. The bells ring at 5:00am, meditation is at 5:20 am and the day starts. Usually the day ends around 7:00pm but if there is chanting/kiritan it will last to about 9:00pm. Here are some more pics. And more monkeys for Jesse and Alex. I believe the hardest part of being here is being away from my family, I miss them horribly, but if it weren’t for them I would not be here in the first place. I know Dave’s doing a wonderful job!

  4. Hi there,
    Thought that you would like to know that Lisa had her baby this morning and everyone is fine. He is nameless at this time and he came into the world at 4 lbs. 1 ounce. He will have to stay in the hospital until he reaches 5lbs 8 ounces but thank God he’s okay since he is 6 weeks early! Counting down the days that you will be back and hope that all is more than well with you!
    Huge hugs
    Linda aka Mrs. Gorgonzolla

  5. Hi Karen! Only about a week left to go! You’re almost there. Everyone here is really proud of you and can’t wait to see you. Take care & have a great trip home!
