Oh my food coma! We just went to a restaurant for dinner that specializes in South Indian cuisine and we ordered a fixed price dinner with about a million courses. I think that I might explode. Everything is so delicious that you have to keep trying everything. Aaah! By the end, Lisa from Cali, exclaimed, "I should have stopped like three courses ago!" And, then she burped!
Today we went shopping and I got a silver pendent of the god Ganesh. Ganesh is the remover of obstacles and I think he is a good one to wear around your neck. He has the head of an elephant and a man's body. I really appreciate having "someone" there looking out for obstacles in your life! Don't worry, I am not becoming religious. I just like him.
We have started playing the game "I will give you a rupee if...." where you (jokingly) try to get someone to do something for a rupee. There are 43 rupees to the dollar so obviously this is not much money! This game started when I was in France with Sally and Kir in 1998 and we would say things like "I will give you a franc if you eat that piece of gum off of the sidewalk." It has been played with lira, drachma, yen, and now rupees. Our favorite is (because we are on planes about every 5 days) to say, "I will give you a rupee if you start an international incident on the plane!" Immature and stupid, I know, but we are all together 24 hours a day for 5 weeks so we have started to get pretty silly sometimes!
Tomorrow we go to a school of dance and then to a place where they have started to reintroduce the use of the abacus to teach math. Can't wait!
