some women may cover up because of the smog from all the traffic...
While others may cover up to escape the prying eyes of "aunties" who might see them out with a male friend.

Meesha wanted me to try some of the sweets. So we stopped for a taste.

My heart goes out to children all around the world who are hungry, abused, trafficked, neglected or abandoned. In every single country we have visited we have seen children in need. India is no different. We may not ever see this child again but we can pray for her and all the others like her who are wandering the streets.
I wonder where her mother is.
I wonder about her background.
I wonder if she was genuinely hungry.
I wonder if someone else took the money she labored to raise.
I wonder if she is scared as she weaves in and out of cars, motorcycles, trucks, rickshaws, and bikes.
I wonder...and I weep for the children of the world.

I should be asleep but for some reason, probably jet lag, I am struggling to turn off my brain. So I decided maybe it would be better to just jot down a few words about our day.
Spencer and Meesha took us out to eat and run a few errands. Here's a bit of a recap with photos...
We ate paper dosas for the first time:
We got up close and personal with a few cows as we rode along checking out the sites:
And we ended our first day relaxing and laughing with the Soares family. What a blessing it has been to meet them in real life and get to know them in person!

Tom's artwork graces our walls. Here is one of his latest pieces. It was influenced by the local Mayan masks that we've seen here in Belize. He was intrigued by the thought of what jewels of different colors look like when light hits them from various angles.
I loved how it turned out!
