I truly cannot believe how far we walked today. I am glad that I was able to take a taxi the last 3 km of 15 km day....such an option was unthinkable in my day. with bad knees this is not being a whimp but being sensible. For the record Sandhya was for walking! ...... I also enjoyed finding an escalator in town....how many times did I dream of having an escalator to walk home. OK so this one went up to the aquarium .....We didnt go. Why should the mountains have an aquarium?
That was just an aside:Scenes from the day:

My Trip to India Oct 10-Nov 7 2013
Those who know me well know how long it has been that I've dreamed of returning to India. I grew up there arriving in 1959 and leaving in 1976 (with about 5 years int the States). Most of the time I spent going toWoodstock School in the foot hill of the Hymalyas in a town called Mussoorie.
While I was somewhat curious to head "home" to see my old stomping grounds, my main purpose was to begin a journey of understanding my ancestral connections to India and to discover what India has become.
Yes, I found there are a lot of changes in India, but in truth the most remarkable thing was how "familiar" it was to me.
