I have many more words to say about the past four days, but pure exhaustion has muddled my brain. On a whim I bought bus tickets to Mumbai and spent Wednesday evening until Saturday afternoon with a bunch of crazy and motivating AIF co-fellows. It was a jumble of debauchery, exploring, and coming to understand a little more of the kaleidoscope of Indian culture. Amazingly fun and completely exhausting.
So for now, a barrage of pictures until I can summon the energy to voice my thoughts.

And my welcome home sight on my way to get groceries this morning – goats. Well played, Pune. Well played.
And now back to normal life – work, writing, and goat watching?
