Concerning Travel

Next Saturday I am going to Amritsar to see the Golden Temple, the center of the Sikh religion. While there, I will be traveling to the Pakistani border to see a sunset ceremony during which the two countries blare music at each other, open the gates between the countries, and salute each other. Sure. The weekend after that is my long break (which will mean that the program is half over), and I will be going to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. Apparently, you haven't lived until you've seen it at sunrise. I'm living.

I also plan on seeing Jaipur, Dehli (pronounced "dili"), and taking a train to the base of the Himalayas.


Pictures will be on facebook. :)


  1. My Dad named our first siamese cat Sikh. So Noel and I decided the next cat would be named Nanack (sp?) after the first Guru of the the religion...just a fun fact for your day! Hopefully I will get to see you when you get back so I can hear of all your (mis)adventures whilist globe trotting.

  2. I knew that, actually. But here, it's pronounced "sick".
