Tuna & Cheeks VI - Kolkata & Agra

So, here we are, coming back from Nepal to India. 10 minutes of relatively random footage, most of it quite interesting. I think a few of these minutes give a sense of the depth and ancient nature of Hindu religion. The statue type figurine you'll see is Shiva, the god worshiped most during Diwali - their biggest annual festival (like our Christmas). He is the destroyer. Think an angry Hebrew God without Christ, grace or love.

Going to try this from Facebook.

If that's not working, the youtube version should work well.

Video - Trekking, Day VII

Here's our journey back to Kathmandu.

Video - Trekking, Day VI

Greetings friends. We're home! We've been home for a little over a week now. My folks picked us up at the airport, bought us some Starbucks and listened to tales of our journey for 24 hours until they departed the following day. What a blessing! Thanks Mom and Dad. On top of that, Amber's parents are coming this weekend to hang out and we're really looking forward to that too. We are feeling the parental love. Thanks guys.

Two hardest things about coming back:
1) Climate - it was well below zero within the first 72 hours that we were back in VT. That's a change of 100 degrees.
2) Rural USA - after being in primarily urban centers of 10 million+ population, we came back to a town of 600, pop.

I suppose any extreme change is generally hard.

So now, without further adieu, I'll post days 6 and 7 of the trek. That will wrap up that stint of our trip. Over the next two weeks I'll be putting together (hopefully) the rest of our footage and posting portions.
