Travel Part 1 – North India

It should be obvious by now that I’m not just spending all of my time in clinics or at NGO’s!  CFHI has been kind enough to leave our weekends free, so naturally, I’ve done some traveling around area.  Rather than bore you with lengthy descriptions paragraphs of my feelings, I’ve posted my favorite pictures of each place.
