Hello From India!

Hi Friends!
No pics for now, because I haven't yet found a computer that can accept my card reader. Poop!

However, just wanted to drop a line and say that I haven't forgotten you. I'm here in Pune, in central India, not too far from Mumbai (aka Bombay) - enjoying totally delicious food. We have a little kitchen in our apartment, armed with a pressure cooker no less - so we've been doing lots of home cooking. But of course there's still plenty of time to go out for wonderful Indian food. Eating out at a restaurant costs about $2-3 (for both of us), and there is a great selection here. Because of its central location, and because Pune is a big city and a university town, you can find almost everything here.

South Indian food is my favorite, and is also a favorite here in Pune. So we've already eaten lots of dosas and uttapams and idlis and sambar. MMMMMMM. Rest assured, I am photodocumenting like crazy and you will not be left out. Plus, I am sampling every Palak Dal in town (spinach dal) and becoming quite a fan!

When we don't eat out, we're busy cooking up beautiful local produce and eating mountains of tropical fruits: pineapples, bananas, baby bananas, fresh coconuts, papayas, and so on. Mmmmmm.

So, in other words, don't worry about me! Hope you're all in bloggy-land!
