My parents and Al are on a 20-day India trip. They spent a week in Mussoorie visiting me, enjoying good food, hamming it up with the local tailors, and seeing the beautiful foothills and Himalayas. Mussoorie was their first stop. Now they are heading to Rishikesh for the weekend and then on to Delhi and Agra.
Breakfast at the hotel. This turned into a 2 hour morning ritual.
Atop Gun HIll (highest point in Mussoorie)
Mom and Dad in front of the snow capped Himalayas.
Sunday brunch up at Char Dukan. Delicious banana pancakes, lassis, and a jolly cake (pancake with a candy bar!)...not very traditional, but indian nonetheless!
Hiking Benog Tibba.
Picnic atop Benog TIbba. The Himalayas had just disappeared into the clouds.
View from the Hindu Temple atop Benog Tibba.
Afternoon trip to Himalaya weavers (in a village past Woodstock). Looking at the beautiful colors of the natural dyes.
Seeing where and how the wool is dyed.
