We went to India over the Christmas break to visit Anjali’s parents in Pune and my extended family in Nagpur.
Anjali’s parents had their 50th anniversary. Here is Anjali with her parents in the middle and her brother on the right. In the front and back row are her cousins.
Here are the kids with their Great Grandmother!
Here are the five of us.
One of the days we went to Sinhagad, a fort from the 1600’s with quite a colorful history. Here are the kids at the entrance to the fort.
On most days, we did our shopping trips and visits in a scooter rickshaw.
We did a side trip to Nagpur which is about a two hour flight from Pune.
We visited my uncles and cousins there.
My cousin Shirish (on the left in the photo above) took us to a wildlife sanctuary outside of Pune.
Here are some pictures from the Pench Tiger Sanctuary. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any tigers but lots of other big game including sambars, horned deer, antelopes and all kinds of monkeys!
On Christmas Day, we went out for Chinese food at Mainland China in Pune. Probably the best Chinese food in India! Christmas Day in India is like any other day there.
On our last day in Pune, Anjali was lucky enough to catch her 30th year high school reunion at St. Joseph’s. Here she is with her friends.
What a trip!
