Ganesh Chaturthi this year
Somehow this didn't get posted in September, so we are on the next holiday, but I'll put these up now anyway.
It's time for the big Ganesh festival again, with decorated idols and offerings of his favorite foods. We were invited to spend the day in the house of our driver, where we participated in the puja and partook of the food.
Our adventures as we relocate from Washington DC (where I had been teaching about Latin American and applied international economics at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University) to Bangalore, India, to work at a think tank start up, where I focused on infrastructure-related issues.
