India

I have been to India twice so far and I have become completely obsessed.
The first year I went we stayed in India for almost almost three weeks.
The second year I went we stayed for two weeks.
We stayed at St. Marks Hotel in Bangalore, India.
St. Marks is a wonderful place to stay.
It is a four star hotel and has great food and service!
I traveled to Agra, Mumbai (Bombay), Ooty, and New Dehli along with places in between.
The Taj Mahal is a must see!
It is so beautiful.
My pictures and videos got stolen in Germany from the first year I went there so if anyone has Taj Mahal pictures I would love to see them!
If you love monkeys than you must go see the great Banyan Tree (sp?)
Just be careful with your stuff and make sure to hold onto it tight!
The monkeys will still it!
That goes for anywhere in India.. The monkeys are everywhere!
The Mysore Palace is also a must see.
It is absolutley amazing.
Ooty is also a place you must visit... don't make the mistake I did though... take warm clothes!
It actually snowed there when I went... it is way up in the mountains and it is soooo cold!
It is very beautiful though.
And if you are a photographer than you will love Ooty!

hi guys. so i just saw this community featured on livejournal's homepage, and i took it as a for sure sign, that my trip to india is for sure going to happen. i don't know when, or with who's money (haha) but it is most definitely going to happen!!

my daughter is 2, and i want to go before it is time for her to start school when she is 5. right now my life is consumed by taking care of my family, community activism (food not bombs, etc.), and teaching kids yoga. i've wanted to travel to india for many years now to study yoga. more recently, i've wanted to travel there also to study ayurveda and indian cuisine.

i'm considering of trying to find a host family to stay with, as opposed to staying in a hotel. does anyone know where i could look for this kind of information?
