dinner was great!


we've been hiking @ 5 hours a day
lots of exploring to be done

we went to some amazing caves with temples in them in a place called ellora
there were waterfalls, mountains, goats, and cows
(took a nap in a cave and woke up to people taking pictures of us)
also visited an amazing fort up in a mountain called daulatabad

we keep meeting amazing people that take us in to their homes
we spent the night in a treehouse next to a cob house and now we're in faculty housing at a university in ahmadabad (i helped some students break into a music room on campus and we jammed out last night)

we've visited some really cool eco friendly factories that are trying to make a difference
(carrying some samples around)

things are getting dry here and i don't mean the monsoon

If D. Garrison looked more Australian than German, he could be our main character.

Miguel in India

well we made it, so far so fun

(i wish i hadn't gotten hurt right before coming here)

but i wouldn't be able to skate anyways

i guess monsoon means "shit-ton of rain"

we got to cristen's friend's house @ 6am here after the 20hr flight endeavour

slept for a bit then off to teach a class

we thought it'd be a few kids but it was 70 something and some teachers at the school too

it was crazy and fun
ps the food"s great
