Faces of India

Hello from Rajasthan!  Ah, finally I have access to fast internet service.   We are already into Day 6 of the Rajasthan Tour with Daily Yoga.  I am in the Pink City of Jaipur.  The night air is pleasantly cool and fragrant here in the desert.  How can it be so fragrant?  Jasmine, rose, and sandalwood fill the air.  I am already lying on my grand bed with Ipad on my lap, ready to post some photos, anticipating falling deep into a perfumed dream world within the next half hour.

Included in this post are photos of various people I have met on this journey.  The many people I have interacted with are kind and playful.  We are having an incredible time and I am so happy to be in the company of such a fun-loving adventurous group. Arvind has been amazing as ever.  In addition to guiding us, he keeps us safe, teaches us about his fascinating culture,  and he gives us the opportunity to integrate and experience India in a profound way.

Note to photographers:  India is a photographer’s dream!  Come see for yourself!

    Gorgeous photos, Fran! Sure wish I we’re there with my sketchbook — looks like a sketcher’s dream, too!
