Jama Masjid

Jama Masjid

We have made it to India safely, and have lots to tell….but we don’t want to stop for long enough to tell it!!  The photo (which I found here) is of Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India.  Our hotel window is in one of the buildings in the top left that looks directly into the west side of the Mosque.  September is the month of Ramadan in which Muslims fast during daylight hours.  In the evening the area has been more active than normal…we think.  Pilgrims sleeping on the sidewalks, goats everywhere, big booms going off at sunset, frantic looking men running to have the first meal of the day.

Delhi is quite an amazing town and India is quite a crazy country.  I can’t wait to see more.

We leave tomorrow morning at 5:00am to fly to Leh, which is a mountain town in the Himalayas.

India Here We Come!!!
