India - Feb 2011

Monday, June 20, 2011

Well this is a long time coming....

In February my partner and I went to India and had such a wonderful time we are planning on going back with the 3 kids for 3 -4 weeks. Even with that amount of time I doubt we could cover even a fraction of what this country has to offer.

Whilst we were there we were lucky enough to spend time with some wonderful people, attend a traditional south Indian wedding and see some wonderful sites.

heres a few pictures I thought you may enjoy...

the above three photos are of a beautiful Hari Krishna Temple a couple of hours drive from Bangalore. It was a stunning site raising up in the middle of nothing. no housing in sight around it that we saw but the temple was full of people.

view from the Chaminar

India's version of our "truck stop" - Best meal EVER. We had such a great time here.

South Indian Wedding - so beautiful and colourful. the ladies wore the most stunning Sari in bright coloured pure silk threaded with gold.

Wedding reception - the bride and groom stood for the entire evening as the guest filed pass and had photos taken with them. The guest mingled and ate a lovely meal but the bride and groom never left the stage and the photographer. They looked exhausted by the end of the night.

We were so lucky to have experience this trip to India.... And to be welcomed into the homes of such lovely people.
