Visitor on the Roof!

Last evening, Mukhes, the cook, knocked on our door and said one word. . . . “Monkeys!”  I ran to the roof terrace which is not as elegant as it sounds and there was this very large visitor.  Mukhes was feeding it pieces of potato from his hand. One of the girls ran to get a banana. The monkey peeled it, then ate it, next he  ate the peel as well!  I guess he wanted to savor every bite of the sweet treat,  The pictures I took were too dark and blurry as I as so excited .  This morning the monkey family was back, male, 2 females, and 2 babies.  Muches said that since we gave them a banana they will keep coming so stay tuned for more monkey images!

Mukhus is a great name for a cook, don’t you think?

Off to the flower and landscape festival on the banks of the river, today. One of the students at Cept, who came to Troy, invited us to see her work. She is working on a master’s degree in landscaping.

This Is Incredible India !  T I I I !

David detests monkeys but I think they are adorable!   What do you think?

      I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be back in incredible India for four months. When we arrived, it was as if we were home on a different continent with different students. It is ever so fun to see them be put on the magical spell of India in just a week! Off to Rajasthan week after next. This coming week, we are attending 3 of the 4 days of a lovely wedding, + Amdavad’s amazing Kite Festival and the kids are supposed to be doing some work. . . in between all the fun !

    You know what I think 😉 Don’t get bitten or scratched because monkeys can carry rabies. I’m the party pooper.
