About Header Photo

I have been changing the header in my blog pretty often.  I love taking pictures so this is like a slow motion slide show of our days.  I will write about the pictures in this page for you to know a little more about it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Here are the pictures I’ve posted  all these years in the header of my blog.  Beginning from the current photo:

Seeing these terraces everywhere you look at, makes me wonder how difficult it must be to live here… they must be so much work to just make them before even start planting.   Incredible all the work they do.

    • Hi Yuvraj, so good to hear from you. We were just talking about you few days ago when we met two boys from Scindia visiting Elsemere College, here in England. We are visiting Ros Mam and Mac Sir in England for few weeks, and had a great time visiting and remembering our days in India, with the Scindia Boys. We sent our regards to you and our other friends we left, when we were looking at the photos from India together. They will see you just in few days, and they will carry our warm greetings to you and your family and all the boys from 6th class, now all growing up, as well.

      I wish I could have sent you some tomato salsa, but maybe you can get to try it again when you come visit us in Oregon some time soon. We would love to have you there, as well as your family. You were all so very nice to us. We think of our last day in Delhi often, and are so thankful for you and your family’s home and friendly hearts.

      Thanks for writing and visiting our blog. I write almost every day, so you will get to see Siena and Lucas and what we are doing, and soon some photos from our trip here in England. Wishing we can see you again soon. From all of us. Marcela + Family
