Every Wednesday night the international students go out to dinner at the Darling Hotel. It is very good food and not too expensive (four of us ate our fill for $20) for American standards. This is apparently a long-standing tradition. This Wednesday we had a group of close to sixty people. The typical size is about twenty people, I guess. The food reminded me of American Indian food, in fact, the dish I ate was the same as something I would have eaten at Gateway to India back home. The restaurant is on the rooftop of the Darling Hotel. I didn't count the flights of stairs, but there were a lot! I was able to take a shot off the rooftop at night, but it is not very clear.

The bus ride into Vellore. (Brother, this is a typical scene on any given government bus ride.)

It was enjoyable to spend an evening in town with fellow internationals. I had the pleasure of eating with fellow Americans (PT students from University of Rhode Island)-- they kept me well entertained. I have included a few photos for your viewing pleasure

  1. I never thought I would be writing this..all things considered. We ate Indian food last night in Seattle. We were well entertained by our grandson Sebastian, age 22 1/2 months. Tiffany loved her chicken with curry. Dale loved his chicken with curry. Darrell loved his prawns with curry. Sebastian loved his bananas. I loved the rice pudding. And this morning, I had some left over rice with almonds, 1/2 and 1/2 and almost raw sugar. It was a very fun night, just a little different from yours Ü
    Thinking about you today, and praying for you!
