Hopefully you are collecting points, miles, or whatever. I have been looking in every now and again on your blog and thanks for the updates. Quite the labour of love I would imagine Is your being in India a temporary move? I don't recall reading if it was. Stay safe and watch out for those mopeds! </div></div>

    Hey Churchdude long time nuh see - glad to see you face about the place. Yes the miles are decent... I guess that's one perk - thanks for checking in on the blog... We are here (in INdia) for 2 years...
    I think by mopeds you mean the Rickshaws - they are a piece of work indeed! I have to do an update on the traffic in MUmbai - it is sooo crazy!

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: SandiF</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Jazz!

    I hope you took pics of Holi Day for us...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Jazz</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Today is HOli Day - it is a big holiday in India... I did a short blog post about it and put up a small video...

    Now I am heading out to join in the excitement! More later! CIAO and SMOOCHES!

    http://blogs.jamaicans.com/jerkmasal...i-day-holiday/ </div></div> </div></div>

    I did SandiF - I am uploading them today - I guess you:ll see them when you wake up...

    I did miss most of the excitement though - apparent;ty things reach a fever pitch with the color throwing around 10 or so in the morning - then they go home around 12 -1 PM to clean up and eat and then do excessive amounts of drinking... my driver emphasized that it has to be A LOT of drinking

    I didn;t leave the house until about 1 PM so I just caught some of the stragglers... Next year I will know better.

    Oh yeah, those too I mentioned mopeds because whenever I see a documentary to do with India, there seems to be traffic gridlock and LOTS of bikes. Looking forward to the traffic update
    aka ChurchDude. I want that moniker back! Until then....

    I guess I should pay better attention to whether they are mopeds or not.
