Leap Day in Agra

We spent Leap Day in Agra touring the Taj Mahal. A jewelry artist/sculptors dream, and there I was (pinching myself). It was truly inspirational! We met up with our friends Brett and Elise and enjoyed several roof top cafe’s with views of the Taj. It felt surreal to have this amazing temple in the background. Fantastic!

Here are some more photos:

Haridwar

We just arrived in Haridwar after a LONG night bus ride from Jaipur. We are taking a two day break here on our way to Saharanpur for the second bead workshop, which starts on Saturday. Haridwar is regarded as one of the seven holiest places to Hindus. Here we visited the holy Ganges River. Interesting Fact: The Ganges basin is the most heavily populated (also most heavily polluted) river basin in the world, with over 400 million people and a population density of about 1,000 inhabitants per square mile. We will see this river again soon when we visit Varanasi.

Here are some photos of our adventure here in Haridwar.

The Women That Made it Happen…

The Saree Wrapped Bead Workshop went great. All of the women were so wonderful to work with. It has been a great experience. Thank you to the young women from Udayan for being part of the workshop and for being my translators! Thank you to all the Anoothi women for doing such a great job creating these beautiful new beads.

I love this photo because you get a sense of the space that the workshop was held in: on the porch of the Anoothi Building at Udayan in Achrol, India.

Geeta! You are a dear woman. I am grateful for our friendship. Thank you for all your help and support while at Udayan. Blessings
