On our way to Ganesha Temple in Sawai Madhopur, India

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

So, we had a couple hours to kill between Tiger Hunts in India and we asked to go see a fort that we had seen a mile or so down the road from our hotel. We climb in back of the jeep with our guide and head off. A few minutes later we are zooming past the fort we had seen without even slowing down. Turns out it was a resort.

Soooo, not for the first time on our Honeymoon, we are in a strange car, with two strange men, in a strange country, and we have NO IDEA WHERE WE ARE GOING. The REAL fort was several miles up a dirt road, then a mile up dirt stairs… then across the fort, there was the Ganesha Temple. That’s where this video was shot. It was a big holiday so there were thousands of people up there.

They all got up there using the same one lane dirt road as us. And home using that same road. Many, at the same time.

So, I’ve uploaded a ton (literally. I weighed them first.) of photos to flickr from the honeymoon as well as the wedding weekend. If you have photos from the wedding weekend – please at them to our group. I would love to see them all in one place! www.flickr.com/groups/sandmwedding/

See how productive I can be on Percocet! I should be on Percocet allllll the time! Also notice that I FINALLY fixed the lil retro side bars and updated the links and such. I know. Many of you would have been REALLY happy if I had done that before the wedding so you would have had a clue as to what was going on and where.

Heh.

Sorry.

We’re Back!

Here’s a short video we took in the Kerala backwaters in southern India. We had a big huge house boat, a navigator, a personal chef and a service person. All to ourselves. We woke up. We ate. We watched the water go by. We watched the people who live on the water. We ate more. Then ate more. Then… more. Then went to bed and did it all over again. It was AMAZING. We got off the boat twice in 48 hours. Once to see an 800 year old church – the other time to get a massage. Unless you ask Scott, then you would replace the word massage with “to get beaten up in the dark. With oil.”
