We had a local guide this morning (same one as yesterday with his love of history, own voice and the sincere belief that everything is just roses….. upper caste Hindu male. Enough said).

The temple which didn’t allow shoes but did allow photos. – and if you want to read an interesting but extremely dense historical fiction – try Siddhartha (Herman Hesse) which happens to be 0.99 on Amazon Kindle.

Second location was to where the Buddha gave his first lecture/sermon/whatever. I stayed in the shoe ok area.

After walking the grounds and seeing various items, brass prayer wheels etc we proceeded to the museum which didn’t allow photos. Winding up with barely 20 minutes to peruse the five large exhibit rooms plus two smaller ones we headed back to the hotel and readied ourselves to return to Delhi.

The flight was fine, everyone’s luggage arrived and we bid farewell to one couple who were flying out in just a few hours.

The rest of us trooped to the hotel, checked in and just thought about getting organized.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
