The wait is finally over! The week of India bombardment has commenced! Now before I lay it on thick, I'd like to thank all the readers on here that stayed loyal to this blog even while I was gone. It was so neat to take a break from the mosquito bites and frenzied traffic honking from outside and see your comments on style and outfits and well wishes on dodging malaria :) So a big ol' thank you for not just being readers, but for being my friends. Now before I get even more mushy on you, let me present KOCHI, INDIA!

  30. i had to come over to p. 2 to start from the beginning. was this the first place you visited? and how did you decide where to visit? Or maybe i should hold my horses until I read the next posts... anyway I hope you submit these pictures to a famous travel publication because some of these are seriously incredible! you got such amazing angles of everything & the pic of u & (your bf i'm guessing?) is so fun. did you have a travel buddy along too to snap shots?
