Dance Base

Many of you have seen the Dance Base's brochure for next term.....Thought you may enjoy seeing some other things they are doing with the pictures from the Photo Shoot - Quite happy I'm not gonna be in Edinburgh next term as this would be a bit embarassing ;)

Taj Mahal

Here are some great pictures from Agra! The Taj Mahal was amazing!!!!! I arrived in Agra last night via the train - took nearly an hour to find a hotel - took a shower and then did my very first 11pm yoga practice ever!!!! I have to say it rocked ;) I cannot explain how enjoyable and how interesting it was to do my practice in agra that late at night - perfect! Didn't get much sleep as I woke up at 5:30am so I could be at the Taj Mahal for sunrise - unfortunately it was wicked foggy today so the sun never did really come up - but it was a magical experience nonetheless....I am very grateful I made my way to see the Taj Mahal and grateful I am here in India. Since it was so foggy my pictures CANNOT do justice to the magnificance of the Taj - but I am sure you can appreciate the splendor of the monumental structure anyway! Enjoy!!!!

Hello From Delhi ;) I've had a wonderful couple days with some amazing new friends, beautiful scenery, delicious food, restful nights of sleep, plenty of sunshine, and yummy warm weather. I feel like I'm in heaven!
I arrived in Delhi Tuesday afternoon and its been pretty non-stop here since then with meeting people, seeing some sights, eating, and just enjoying being back in India - ah sweet India!
I've also had the MOST amazing couple of yoga practices since I've arrived. Stayed with my friend barbara the first night and practiced in her den the first practice back in India - it's not uber hot here but CERTAINLY much warmer than Scotland.

Above are some pictures from the Famous Gate of India and the memorial to Gandhi, as well as a few pictures from a local temple to Durga.

Goodbye Edinburgh!

All I can say is WOW! It has been an incredible whirlwind the last few weeks - time has flown by faster than I thought humanly possible! Kwang came to visit from November 26th through December 4th and that was such an amazing week together. It'd been over six months since we saw one another and I must say absence really and truly does make the heart grow fonder - I had missed him terribly but it was so much sweeter to see him and hug him and snuggle with him after such a long time apart. We had a great time in Edinbugh together while he was here - he got to be a tourist and also see a day in my life here. I was really sad when he left on the 4th but on the other hand didn't have time to really be sad because I had one more full week of teaching and living here in Edinburgh before my departure....And that week has come and gone and here I am about three hours from my flight to Delhi and I CANNOT believe this 3 1/2 months has gone by so fast.
I'll be sure to post bits and pieces during my three week trek through North India. I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and happy New Year! See most of you in 2009!
Here are a few pictures from Kwangs trip to Scotland:
