From Summer 2003 to Summer 2006 we lived in India, and used this opportunity to travel the country. I have started to add content in the form of locations, of which more will be appearing as soon as get my earlier photos scanned.

I wrote about it, immediately after the tsunami (see first article), and when I went back again, four months later (see second article), and took some photos.
