An extended trip.

Matt arrived last week to India (!!!), and we are leaving tomorrow for a 13-day trip that will loop us through five major destinations. Namely, we're going to see the lake city of Udaipur, ancient Jain temples in Palitana, cave frescoes and sculptures in Ajanta and Ellora, the holy city of Varanasi, and the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra.

The itinerary looks something like this:

Jan 2 - overnight train to Udaipur
Jan 3 - day in Udaipur
Jan 4 - overnight train to Ahmedebad
Jan 5 - bus to Palitana
Jan 6 - day in Palitana
Jan 7 - overnight train to Jalgaon
Jan 8 - day in Ajanta
Jan 9 - day in Ellora
Jan 10 - train to Varanasi
Jan 11 - day in Varanasi
Jan 12 - day in Sarnath
Jan 13 - overnight train to Agra
Jan 14 - day in Agra, bus to Delhi

Posting will be spotty, and pictures will come in installments following the trip. In the meantime, happy new year!

Hi Faye! Hope you and Matt enjoyed the trip! Yeah, it shouldn't be a problem getting your letter. No, I haven't received it yet, but things are slooooow here haha. I'm sure it will show up.

Also, no, sadly I don't have plans to go home before November. I was a bit homesick over the holidays and I still do feel it every once and awhile but I know the time will pass quickly -- it already has! I would rather spend my time soaking up as much of Morocco as I can and using my 'vacation' time to go to other new places.

So you excited for home? You getting excited about finding out where you will be next year? It's so weird to think that you will be choosing your residence for the next five years or so when you go to grad school.

Okay, miss you! XOXO
