Well, the Burchells have survived another month-long adventure in South India. We arrived home this afternoon to find our house just where we left it. We spent a great deal of time soaking up the sun on the beach. We had some steak, some fish, and some deep-fried shrimp (but here they are 'prawns'). We saw the ruins of Hampi. At the moment it seems like we spent most of the time on trains, but that can't be right. Anyway, I have pretty much forgotten how to compose a sentence, much less type it out, so I'll quit for tonight. Here are a few pictures of spices, an ancient Hindu temple, and my beloved family. I will not insult your intelligence by telling you which is which.
