First Day in India

In Bangalore I'm staying with Jackson and Arzu in Arzu's childhood home. It's a highly stylized ongoing work in progress as both Arzu's parents are architects. Pictured below is a view of part of the house from one of the garden lined rooftops.


The food is incredible and everyone thinks it's funny when I turn bright red from the spices.
Last night we went to a solo Odissi dance performance by a 12 year old girl who studies under the same dance teacher as Arzu. Pictured below is a flower design from the floor in the lobby of the dance performance.
