I have been writing this blog for about 3 months - mainly as a way to stay in touch with those back home & to have a record of my time here in India. Lately, I've been humbled by the comments & visits I've received from people around the world. I checked my page stats today, and in the month of August, this blog was visited by people in 44 countries around the world.

So - thank you for visiting, reading, commenting on this little pet project. If you have ideas, or topics you'd like to see covered - please let me know. And for those of you keeping track - enjoy the list of countries also represented here.

Dear Scott:

I am quite fascinated by India - it is an assault on all the senses - from the heat, poverty, squalor, unbelievable beauty, and a colorful history.

I visited for 20 days in June 2006 - starting in Chennai, then to Bangalore, Hyderabad, and finally to Delhi/Agra (could not visit the country without seeing the Taj!).

Lucky I had Indian friends to chapperone me, and with a few exceptions - beggars, peddlers, and a hotel receptionist who made it plain that she had no use for me - everyone was hospitable. (OK, so I was pointed at, and giggled at, and turned people's heads on many occassions - but everyone was delightful.

So, I am always curious to know what Americans think of India, and your reports provide just the sort of insight I look for and enjoy reading.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Peter! I had a similar experience when I visited India in 2007. I enjoyed the visit so much that I decided I would pursue an opportunity to move here if one presented itself. And thankfully, it did!
