accident smaccident

4/8/08 Time races by, and our very pointless but fun (while not in the car) mid-internship return to Jaipur has come and gone. We spent 13 hours in a miserably hot and uncomfortable jeep for 32 hours in Jaipur, but we got to meet up with everyone from the program, catch up, and hear their...

Holi cow! (last pun I promise)

Holi Holiday, What a holiday! I told you about preparation for the big event in the country. Preparation in the city was a bit more active and a bit less productive. Two days before the big day, the street bizaars were chalk full of stands selling heaps of colored powder in bags, small...
