    Re: My India Trip - Complaints and Joys

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Preeti. It is amazing how we become so acclimated to our own way of living even when our roots begin in another environment. It also gives us pause to stop and appreciate just how lucky we are to have the comforts of life that we enjoy here in the U.S.

    Joe spent many years off and on living in Hyderabad working on projects for his company. India holds a special place in his heart. He even took our older daughter with him at one point. She lived with him there for six months. I stayed home with our younger daughter since she was in high school at the time. You can well imagine how much I enjoyed reading your story after hearing so many stories from these two.

    I'm glad you had a chance to spend time with your sister. It's a long journey to India from the states - one I was never willing to make. I'm sure it was hard saying goodbye to your sis. Has she been to the states to visit you?

      Thank you so much for sharing your trip! The fabrics are beautiful and I loved those earrings too! I don't think I could tolerate the heat though.

        Thank for sharing your trip Preeti....it sounds like it was wonderful and trying all at the same time. How nice to be able to visit with your Mom and sister, 10 years is such a long time not to be able to see our loved ones. I seriously doubt if I could take that heat without complaining, and to be stuck in a cab with no air conditioning - I admire your strength!!!!

        I doubt if I'll ever be in India, but would love to visit that "shop" at the airport....it sounds so calming - nice way to end your trip!!!!

          I LOVE reading your blog posts. While I will never visit India in a million years (couldn't handle that heat), I feel like I have learned a lot through this post. Glad you made it back safe and sound. Lovely fabric you bought over there and on Craftsy.

            I really enjoyed reading about your trip. Even through the heat and other discomforts you have made wonderful memories. Home is never what you quite remember when re-visited but all in all sounds like a fantastic trip. Thanks for sharing.

              I'm sure this was an interesting read, but every time I go to your blog, I get an ugly virus, so I can't read about your trip.

                It is hot in June but December is very pleasant. I only went at this time because of mom's surgery.
                I came to the US in 2003. Have been back a few times but always in winter. My sister lives in Pennsylvania. We flew together and returned together. It was a non-stop 14 hour direct flight from Newark to New Delhi. And while we are discussing this topic the exchange rate is 65 Indian rupees to a dollar, making it a very reasonable destination for varied experiences whether it is art, fabric, jewelry, architecture or cuisine.
                Just do not go in summer.

                    This was so interesting, and especially so seeing it through your eyes as both a native Indian --oh dear person born in India I don't know the politically correct term--and as a U.S. citizen. Sounds like you knew or found the best places to shop! I love those solid fabrics you got. I am sure they will find their way into one of your beautiful masterpieces!

                        That is strange indeed.
