quick bite

I'm still here in India and just wanted to thank everyone for the kind comments while I'm away.

So here is another quick list to give you an idea of what I've been up to these last few days. My brother lives in South India, but as I'm an Uptown Girl he knew that he should show me the touristy parts of the north (sort of like uptown, but mostly not).

I'd like to call this list "Stuff White People Like":
  • The Taj. Yeah, the amazing Taj Mahal. Number 1 wonder of the world (at least that's what our guide told me.
  • Elephant ride on my bro's b-day while wearing kitchy Maharajah hats. Think Moulin Rouge. Think Ewan McGregor. No, he didn't wear a Maharajah hat, but how can you think of Moulin Rouge and not Ewan??
  • Camel ride.
  • Forts and Palaces. We stayed overnight at Neemrana Fort Palace which was once... wait for it... a fort palace. It is now a "Non-hotel Hotel" with a pool, camel rides, and zip-lines.
  • Yummy food with little to no hotness. I bring to the table all the hotness needed. You know.
More later... gtg eat Indian food. Here they just call it food.

I'd like to ride a camel. Maybe I'll go to Busch Gardens in Tampa. That's as far as I can stand to fly.

What, no Indian food in India? Shocking.

UpTown Girl, I need to see photos of your Indian Thanksgiving STAT! I loved the image of you sharing a Thankgiving meal with the Indians on your last post. It made me laugh for days. You're so clever!
