The Bubber family gave us the grand hosting of Bombay, India for over a week!  Food, entertainment, a trip to their country home and even a few birthday parties.  Hospitality doesn't get any better than this.

Noam was my traveling Israeli companion throughout eastern Turkey.  He was a blast and knows how to tame the Turkish Dogs Our encounter with Ravi at the Red Fort in Delhi, India resulted in his kind gift of an umbrella hat to Julia.  Julia's always wanted an umbrella hat, now she got her wish.
