Back from the homeland

Happy New year every one. We just got back from a wonderful month long vacation in India. In the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks a few of our friends and family were a little worried about us embarking on this trip with the little one. But we have to say that we always felt very safe wherever we went. It was a bit alarming though to see gun totting cops wherever we went, especially at the pristine beaches in Goa. Our itinerary was very packed. Starting on Dec. 5th, we flew straight to Goa from San Francisco via Mumbai, spent a couple of days relaxing at home with Maizin, then took off on a 4 day trip to check out the ancient caves of Ajanta & Ellora. From there we flew to Bangalore to spend a few days visiting the Quadros' and returned to Goa in time for Maizin's birthday. The next three weeks were spent in Goa celebrating Christmas and New Years and then before we knew it the vacation was over and it was time to head back to the States.

More details will follow in subsequent posts, but here's a couple of pictures to get you started. Angela enjoys a bit of R&R time at Saba's beach shack and Aiden gets spoon fed by Madhuri while sitting on Dada and catching up on the news. That's pretty much how the entire trip went for him. He went from the somber life that he lived in the States with his Mom & Dad to a sudden explosion of being the center of attraction everywhere he went.
