Couldn't post this in India, no working internet connection, but here it is a few days late from the US...Yesterday (*Sat Aug 4) we were at the Taj Mahal, quite amazing. The wild 5.5 hr bus ride each way (Delhi to Agra and back) was also a memorable experience! Today, we visited a temple of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He was a torchbearer of Indian culture and spirituality. The temple was astounding inside and out After lunch, we went to an outdoor bazaar and bought artifacts of Indian culture while testing our negotiations skills. Only a sore throat and 5 or 6 mosquito bites in all, but wow they're itchy! Lets hope these anti-malaria pills work...I suppose I should be grateful that I'm not running to the bathroom like some of the others in our group. 10 days in India seems like a short trip to some, a long trip to others, but all in all, its just about right to visit enough companies, study their business models, make presentations, study, take a test, see several cultural and historical landmarks in three cities, and have a little time to experience the culture in person talking to students, professionals and Indian citizens. It was a great trip, and I feel much better prepared to work with Indian firms in the future, and look forward to that opportunity.Rob
