For some, giving elephant rides is a profession. They eat with, sleep with, raise their children next to, and do life with their elephants in their homes.

Everywhere we went, my father-in-law was giving marriage advice to all the young newlyweds. (I - of course - couldn't understand what he was saying, but it was something along the lines of, "Marry a sweet girl, and don't be afraid to do the dishes!") This strange Indian with his white family always drew crowds of people and plenty of stares. :)

After our last day of sightseeing in Delhi, we packed up and left for America at 11pm. I got sick on the flight home, so I didn't feel like taking many pictures after that (I WAS thankful that I didn't get sick until the way home - what a blessing!).

However, this is still one of my favorites from our trip: My other family + the Taj Mahal. Not really sure it gets much better (or more Indian) than that. :)

 

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that prayed so faithfully for us while we were traveling. It was a miracle that none of us got really really sick (although we all had our moments of icky-ness), and we were SO thankful for all of the safe travel (8 flights and 2 trains later). It was definitely the trip of a life time, and the memories that were made are some I will never forget. I hope you've enjoyed the photos! :)

 

Have a lovely Thursday! :)
