Thanksgivings past

Thanksgiving Day picnic - 2011
Two years ago my daughter and I visited my brother in India and he took us on an adventure far up in the North East close to the Indian Chinese border area of Arunachal Pradesh. The roads were bumpy and dangerous and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. We stayed the night in a Buddhist's nun's monastery and learned to make dumplings. We were having a steamed fish picnic in a rice paddy in a hospitable village when I realized it was Thanksgiving and I felt very fortunate.
