In January itself, I had been hoping to finish writing about my “Moments from 2012”. I know it is March already, but its better late than never!

2012 was quite an eventful year for both, Bhakti and I. The beginning of the year was fairly quiet with my professional project winding down by the end of May. The action started in June when we temporarily moved to India.

Morning Adventures

We woke up at sunrise.  I had a good night’s sleep and felt fresh, unlike everyone else.  Normally, early winter nights in the Sahyadris are fairly cold; however, this time, the night had been quite pleasant and comfortable.  I think it was because the rocks that absorb heat during the day time radiate heat at night, and we had slept on those very rocks and were surrounded by them.
