Quick Update

So I don't have time for a full post, but just a quickie on what we did today.

Scott and I were bored of campus so we went to Nagarjuna Sagar to check out the dam, some ancient Buddhist relics and a waterfall.

The sites were okay but the trip there was LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. It took 4+ hours there and 4+ back, even though it was only 150KM away. The bus also left45 mins late so we only had an hour at the Nagarjuna island to check out the museum and the sites. Again it was really cool, but there is no way we would have done it if we knew the time cost. Incidentally the monetary cost was rediculously cheap. All told it was something like $500 rupees (about $13) each for transportation to and from the dam, a ferry to the island, admittance to the museum and lunch.

There is a LOT more to the story that I will hopefull update tomorrow or the next day with photos and video. Including one where we were almost killed by wild Monkeys - or at least feared that we would be.

  1. On the topic of Wild Monkeys, the squirrels are back out in force in Kingston (due to recent warm weather) and I've had some close calls here as well... Glad to hear you guys made it!
