    Default Finally, I'm Back!!!

    It has been a crazy few months! I have been off TbF for a while..

    I was in India for 4 weeks...took a whole lot of planning to get that much time off from work Just got back yesterday.

    Had a great trip and now looking forward to getting into routine and catching up on all the new here

    How is everyone? What's been happening??? so many new threads...wondering where to start the catch up process!

    BTW, Wish you a very happy wedded life Alex!!!

    Yay Fedup is back!
    Nothing new here, but that isn't anything unusual I suppose.

    Thanks Ladies

    The trip was great, although the City my parents live in was very hot! average temp. 105-108 degrees
    Visited some vacation spots and spent most time with family. Had reunions with my school friends after 20 years and also with my friends from my bachelor's degree days!

    Shopped like crazy...will wait to see credit card bills

    here are a few pics from the spots i visited. BTW, i visited southern India. Pics are froma place called 'Kodaikanal' which is like Smoky Mountains and a place called 'Kanyakumari', which is the southermost tip of India where the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean meet at one spot and a great South India temple called "Ten-Kasi" built in 783 A.D.

    Haha! It's been 100 degrees + here for the last week and they are talking the same for this week, but I guess you're in Michigan so it's not as hot there. I love your pictures, very pretty scenery!

    Thanks ZG.

    BrS, the problem with it being so hot In India is, the demand for power soars, as a result there is 1 hour of power cut for every 3 hours of power on. So even if you have air conditioner, it is of no use, since the only thing a generator can run is 2 portable fans. You sweat like a pig every time the power goes off, and once it comes back on you set the AC to glacial conditions...lol! Added to it, my parents live on the coast, so humidity is always at 95% or above

    Wow, that's pretty insane! I need to have to AC on all the time. LOL! Well, part of that is because of the rabbits though. They can't get too hot you know.

    So you said you did a lot of shopping, what did you all buy?

    I bought a LOT of things: kashmiri silk scarves, pashmina stoles, ankle length cotton Indian block print skirts, crush cotton ombre skirts, short tunic tops, tons of Indian outfits and sarees, raw silk block printed sheet sets, brass artifacts, and of course tons and tons of beads and findings for my jewelry line

    Thanks Jenn..it was fun.
    The buying power of the middle class in India is unbelievable!! While shopping, people were paying in cash for purchases equivalent upto $4K and $5K. I felt poor in comparison even though i think i would qualify as upper middle class here...lol! The disposable income compared to the cost of living is staggering.

    Wow Fedup, I couldn't imagine spending that much money on a shopping trip. Do you have pictures of your "meager" purchases? They sound very pretty!
