I'm alive and well in India!


After almost 3 months in Bangalore, I finally got an internet connection at home. (The joke here is that when people say Bangalore is "wired," they're referring to the random wires hanging all over the place!) I started working the day after I got here, so haven't traveled for fun much yet. But for work I've visited schools in different parts of southern India, including this class under a tree in Bellary. Here are a few more photos of schools (with insightful comments from yours truly) -- Enjoy!

Hi Nicole! Hope you are enjoying Bangalore. We were there about 11 years ago for a wedding, and we had a good chuckle over the "Silicon Valley" moniker. At least once a day there was a brownout...companies must spent a fortune on generators! I can't wait to go back...it was a place in transition when we were there, so I am looking forward to reading about your adventures...
