Back to India as a guest, friend and consultant

Jaipur, India

Vijay Day: Last year I spent my time in Jaipur, India with tour guide Vijay Chandel; ; today I returned as a guest, friend and consultant. My day with Vijay was spent preparing for Diwali, India’s one month celebration which combines the western equivalent of Independence Day, Christmas and New Year into a month long celebration.

We started the day putting up Diwali decorations and then proceeded to buy fireworks, kites, and treats to share with family and friends, ending the night testing the fireworks and checking out the lights. I enjoyed meeting Vijay’s family, friends and neighbors, I look forward to an eventful week, and progress on our desire to increase cultural tourism and support of cultural heritage, arts and crafts in conjunction with contacts in Africa and Asia.
