We left Friday morning at 6 AM for a 9 hour trip by car to the resort where the conference was held and headed home immediately after we finished the last workshop Saturday afternoon. We made it home just before 11 PM Saturday night satisfied that we had done well. With so many of our active members (5) attending the conference and 2 more out of town for another reason, I felt it necessary to get back and be at the branch on Sunday. The conference concluded with a testimony meeting on Sunday morning that we would have loved to be at.
We overflowed into the eating tent, but here is a shot of part of the speed dating activity going strong.
Saturday morning we were up and ready to leave for the Tiger Reserve at 6:30, but paperwork delays kept us waiting an hour.
Here is a group from the Delhi 1st Branch, cold.
The Noida Branch YSAs including a couple of men being taught by the missionaries. L-R back Elder Tanner, Laxman, Timothy, Roma Hukil, Sister Tanner, Sonia Hukil, L-R front Barnad Singh, Dhirendra (Robin) Baisoya, and Dennis Thomas
We were picked up at the resort and toured the Reserve in vehicles like this called a canter. There are 5 or 6 tour routes inside the Reserve and we all went on a different one.
Two of our groups actually saw one or more tigers. Our group saw what appears to be a fresh tiger paw print and notice the deer track right in front of it, hmmmmm?
This turkey vulture had a snake in its beak as we came down the road. We stopped as it ran away from us, then it stopped and we watched it have breakfast.
Some ladies in the parking area below the fort. I just love the colors, the reason for including the picture.
If you look in the center of the picture, you'll see a good reason to pass on swimming in this pond.
And a trip to Rajasthan would not be complete without a camel picture or two. These are a couple of Sister Tanner's favorites.
