Okay okay, I entirely fail! Apparently people actually read this blog and want to know what’s going on, so I should probably update it more often. As I have become more retrospective over the past couple weeks, I haven’t taken as many pictures. I do want to share, however, the beauty that’s here. Here we go:

Lately I’ve been struck by the wildlife that I see here in just my small radius of living in India. I don’t have a car or a scooter – a popular form of transportation here – so walking is my only means of getting around. Given this, I was shocked when the other day I almost ran into a troop of…

This past Saturday, my teacher from back in the States brought 4 of us yoga students to Srirangapatna to see the Raganathaswami Temple. I, for one, had never seen anything like it, and was very grateful to have such a cultural experience! Inside was a stucco image of the Hindu god Raganatha, or Vishnu (it’s one of Vishnu’s temples), among many others and were so ornate and beautifully made and decorated. There was also a little baby who was brought, naked, to sit on the main image of Vishnu… It kind of looked like a baby baptism does for Christians. It was so cute! It made me smile. 🙂

In an endeavor to get away for a bit and focus on myself, I find myself halfway across the world in a country I’ve never been to. The sights, the sounds, the smells… they’re all so different from what I experience daily in the States. I originally wasn’t planning on blogging here, but I wanted to share some of the beauty of this country.
So first… My view at breakfast:
Coconut trees so close I can touch them from the rooftop!
This is the lovely view from the rooftop where I eat breakfast some mornings. And yes, those are coconut trees! Not palm trees. Did you know there is a difference?!
