Parents - Delhi and Mussoorie

The grand finale of my winter travels was meeting my parents in Delhi. We spent a few days exploring Delhi, mostly by foot and by metro, and then headed up to Mussoorie. They stayed with me for about 10 days total. Unfortunately, their visit coincided with the coldest part of the year. It looks deceivingly warm outside, but without central heating the house gets really, really cold. We spent most evening huddled up by the wood-stove. 

I was busy with staff meetings and the arrival of students, but we managed to carve out time for adventures in the area and lots of meals with friends/co-workers. (They should visit more often - my popularity went up immensely.)

All in all, it was great to spend so much time with them. I'm so thankful they are willing and able to come visit!
