Sweet rest!

Wednesday, 1/13—visit with friends & traveling

We had a wonderful visit with Ragu’s wife, Priya, and their son, Gilbert Christo, who was born on November 23, 2009. As you can see from the pictures, he is adorable! It was great to relax and hang out with Priya and her family, and I even tried to give Gilbert his first taste of pizza at the restaurant! 🙂 All of our traveling went so well that we decided to head to Coonoor Wednesday night instead of spending another night in the hot, buggy hotel room. Coonoor is at the top of the Nilgiris mountains, and when we got near the top, the fog and rain was settled in. It was very difficult driving on all of those hairpin turns when you could only see 2 feet in front of you and one missed turn could send you right off the side  of the mountain! By God’s grace, we arrived safe and sound around midnight.

Thursday, 1/14—fun day!

Today we went to Ooty (tourist town nearby) for some shopping and sightseeing.  We visited the Botanical Gardens (Mom, you would have loved it!) and Wax World (wax statues—very interesting history of India).  The weather here in Coonoor is beautiful—70s and dry.  It was such a nice day!  Children’s program tomorrow…

  1. Even with all your travels you look so happy and refreshed. You are so far away and yet with all of this modern technology are able to say so close.
    May God continue to bless you and those you encounter on this fruitful journey. A real hot day here today – in the low 40’s.
    Love, Judy
