Life in India

Life in India means surrendering what we often take for granted. You can't drink the water or brush your teeth using water from the tap. You can't casually rinse off a piece of fruit or wipe an apple on your shirt. You have to soak veggies and fruits in a special solution to make sure they are sterilized before consumption.

While driving through the city, I saw a Hindu priest leading worshipers into the temple mounted on top by this god. The priest rings a bell upon entering the temple to wake up the gods. 

Mary and Joseph watch over newborn Jesus in the manger. A scene from the Nativity program presented at church.

Really makes me appreciate what we have over here. Totally amazes me and I have such respect for the people of India. Thanks, again, for sharing.

You're welcome, Debbie. Today we go to the park and take a much-needed walk. So I'm sure I'll have more pics for you soon!
