Postcards from Paradise

The silence is like a weight. So still. A rustle of leaves as the wind blesses the trees outside.

Landour, Mussoorie. Shanti Kunj. Our home for a soul-enriching 2 weeks.

All the more fun as Asha and Enoch were along with us to give us new eyes to explore and enjoy the place!

You just cannot beat a view like this out the huge windows that line the upper and lower floors of Mum and Dad's home. I had to pinch myself to make sure it was real.

But we did not only gaze out at the view over cups of coffee - we went. Almost every day was a picnic somewhere. One day Fairy Glen (below) another Mt. Hermon flats, once over to Library Bazaar, till we finally went up Flag Hill on our final day. We are very proud of our little hikers (with minimal complaints from them!).
It was great to have Joanna (Sheba's sister Sarah's daughter) along with us 10 days. What a treat for the cousins to be together (and for us all!).
Post cards from paradise. A taste of what is to come.

  1. Wow -- what a little bit of paradise. As it starts getting super hot (right?) down in the lowlands, I'm sure your trip to Mussoorie was quite wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing the pristine views and great picnic trips.
