It's been a great ride, but now it's time to move on to new pastures... So to all of the faithful readers and followers of Swimming In India... thanks so much for your comments, feedback and patience over the past 3.5 years. I've enjoyed every minute of it!

Check out the continuing adventures and observations from our humble American family in Austin, Texas.  Please join us on...  Searching For The Elephant.

All the best!    -- HouseBoy.

The Last Ride

Audrey and Lesa had a great last riding lesson this past Sunday morning at the Delhi Riding Club...
Although it was hot and dusty, the "sir" gave them both extra pointers for riding with one hand and gave them each a few extra laps of cantering.
 Ms. Beeru, the club's proprietor, was in her glory, shouting orders at the stable boys and sharing her many stories with Evan and me while we sipped our pipping-hot glasses of sweet, milk chai.
It was a such a pleasant morning to cap off the last two years of riding lessons in that quiet grove of trees behind the huge, 18th Century Safdarjung tomb.

Audrey in the Studio

Audrey had her first big gig as a voice-over artist this afternoon. She recorded several takes for the introductory and concluding narration of our short documentary, "Champa Mera Sathi."
Her voice will be a part of the North American version of the film. Audrey got to record in the sound-proof studio, and work with the sound team at Mahatta Media Studios:
Sound Engineer Nittin, Lead Sound Engineer Swapan, and my Recording Manager & good friend, Prachi. Here's a BIG "thank you" to the Mahatta staff for all of their help and professionalism! It was a nice opportunity for Audrey... She had a lot of fun today!
