Today we saw the city palace, very preatty, and many stairs, very preatty. Then we walked back and had a very yummy tomato soup and pakora and French freis yum! Then we rested for a bit. Mommy, Poppa, Daddy and I think Manu slept to. but I read a comic and Harry Potter and two mystry novels. And today was the first time I did a camel cart ride! Very fun, we went to a lake and I played with Hindu girls and I ripped my pants :( Then we had dinner and went to bed.

Dear Anica,
Your journal is so interesting! You are seeing so many different things each day, but we're surprised that McDonalds is there too. What did you eat at TGIF's ? I bet that camel cart ride was fun. Keep writing because we really enjoy it.
Love & Hugs,

Anica, what a great journal! I've really enjoyed reading your viewpoint on India and everything you've been doing. It sounds like you had fun birthday shopping! I wonder what those secret presents were...

You've become a wonderful traveller and I'm sure Mommy and Daddy have told you how nice it is to travel with you. Can't wait for your next update!

DearAnica, I enjoy reading what you have been doing in India. Sounds like you are having the trip of a life time. When I was in Delhi a peddler stuck a wooden snake in my face. Iran screaming into the nearest shop, I am terified of snakes. I was very impressedthat he came in and apologized. When I went to Agra, we stopped for lunch. There was a snake charmer, complete with a mongoose. Another travelertook a photo for me. Saveral years later I was able to look at the photo with out a knee jerk reaction! Please no surprise snake souveniors in the mail! We are off to teh city council meeting where Julia & Jaclyn will say the Pledge of Allegiance. May be they should sing Oh Canada too! Take care!

Dear Anica, I can't wait until we get to see you again. Today we had school. My sister and I are wondering, why do you put good night at the end of the paragraphs? This Thursday is Thanksgiving here, so Happy Thanksgivng. I'm glad we met and we saw you! Right now we're sitting down eatting dinner and watching The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy. I forgot when your b-day is so when is it? Where are you going next? From julia

Dear Sherry - wow! when that snake charmer put a snake in your face, it must have been scary. We've seen many snake charmers with real cobras, but haven't been scared. One had about five.
J & J - I put good night because it would be weird to end the day any other way! My birthday was on Nov 8.
Momma - the secret presents were a camera, a magician's set, and a Barbie makeup set. I'm glad you like my journal.
N & G - at TGIF's I ate lamb-burger, and 2nd time it was chicken strips. Kids ran alongside our camel cart and then played with me at the park.

Bye everyone - Love Anica
