Heart Wood Block India Nov 2014

Wooden block for printing

I love India! If you know me, you know I notice hearts. We had our first full day in Delhi today and my heart is full. We arrived about 24 hours ago and we have already seen and done so much. It’s almost midnight here in Delhi, so I want to quickly share how my morning started today.


My mom and I rode a rickshaw through the busy and very loud streets of Old Delhi. The Red Fort is on our right. The Red Fort was the palace for Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s new capital Shahjahandabad. It was built in 1648 A.D. The yellow and green vehicle is called a tuk tuk. The honking horn means you want to get around someone. See it live below and let me know what you think!
