I am severally behind in posting current information. The home-stay in Hyderabad was the best of the best. I am planning on visiting the family for a weekend before I leave the country in April. So far I have observed two house warming parties, one baby shower, and one pre-wedding party.
I am heading to the area of Bhubaneswar for 10 days and will try to update the blog with pictures and more information.
After Bhudaneswar I will be visit Calcutta and then Darjeeling on my way to visit Sikkim. Then I will travel the North and back to the South. The travel plan changed a bit. However, through the family I might be renting a flat in Varanasi for a month. The last place I expected to rent a place. Vanarnasi is the most spiritual/religious place in India. I am looking into getting some mobile broadband internet.
