Hiatus

"a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc."

I did it. I made it through three flights, a ten and a half hour time difference, giving up Starbucks and going a day without much sleep or a shower (things I never do). The result? I'm currently sitting in a lounge with pale blue walls and cool tile floors. Outside, the sky is bright blue and the warm December sun is filtering down on the beautiful flowers and vibrant greenery. The temperature, which reads "82 degrees" is a far cry from a snow filled New England day. Is it global warming? Thankfully, no.

I'm currently sitting with 27 other daring individuals in Hyderabad, India. It is here that i'll be learning the ropes (if that's even possible...) of this contradictory and painstakingly beautiful country.

I arrived on the 28th and will be here until next May, and as such, my time is going to be sufficiently occupied with an attempt to immerse myself in this remarkable culture and do my best to keep from becoming ridiculously overwhelmed. 

I'd like to say I'll keep posting on this blog as frequently as I had been, but I know that's not likely to happen - especially since I've started up a separate blog for everyone to "follow" along as I venture on this escapade.

I hope you won't all give up on me, as I'll do my best to update occasionally and will surely "return to my regularly scheduled programing" once I fly back to The States.

Until then, I hope you'll join me at www.incenseandanklebells.com and experience India right alongside me. 

Happy New Year!

XOXO
