cheers! thank you so much for thinking of me and for the support!

Response: hey!! it's actuallyl nearly FOUR months.. and it's funny- i'm at that point of the trip (i've been told four months is a marker..) where i'm reevaluating my trip and regroupign. my plan was to go to mumbai, rajastan nad then delhi- possibly veranasi on my way to Nepal- where i anyways need to go as my visa expires on April 15th. (a week b4 my b-day) then after a couple of months trekking in the Hymalyas- get back to india- to the north of india- and then off to israel (around august.. b4 the monsoons..)
but i may cut it short- who knows... it's got to work out for me... and why shoudlnt' it..??
miss you! love! huv

Response: Dearest Danny!!! what a sweet message! thank you!!! :) i often think on shabbat- 'oh, i must drop by the Zehavis.. haven't seen them in a while.. and really miss Suzan's amazing food!!', then i remmeber 'wait a second! i'm in India..., well let me travel in my mind to the Zehavis'.... i haven't told you and Suzan this- but you guys are a major 'role model' for how i'd like my home to be G-d willing, when the time comes... thank you for all the warm shabboses.. i miss you very much!! hope to see you in Israel in the summer!!!!! love, Huvi
Response: Zvi!!! it's funny cuz i do feel very lucky to be on this trip! and recognize how wonderful this opportunity is.. yet- there are many moemnts in which i am humbled.. or realize deeply how imp. my friends and family are in my life..
i've had for the first time a few not such great exp. with some ppl- and in those moments you wish you had a warm home.. a warm hug- from a dear friend... and you realize that 'this whole world is the same.'- ein chadash tachat hashemesh..'
and deep down- we all want to settle down with love.. a family.. and a good community..
not taking away from many powerful moemnts in solitude.. many amazing experiences in my travels.. and many stunning places in this world..
next trip- g-d willing- WITH a partner..
i hope.. (prehaps my honey moon?... :)lol
miss you tons! and appreciate our friendship at this moment in a new way!

Response: awwwwww..... your message brings me to tears...... sooo sweet!!! misss you TONS! love!!!! and HUGE hugs!!!!!!!!
Response: i LOVE that.... especially connecting with so many souls of different nations who are also all yearning to connect wtih spirtuality and g-d, it's so inspiring.. i feel that while universal spirituality is there and is so real and vital.. and essential.. it's equally important to find your own unique path, the one that connects YOUR soul to its creator... and we all yearn upwards just like the candles burning in my window- all face up and flicker upwardly in a similar motion... yet each is connected to its own wick, its own candle.....
Response: hey!!! Yeah- i was in the area several times but didn't actually make it to the puja... but hope to go soon.. (i am also sending you an email tonight... ;)
Response: hey!!! :) i can use some nah nah juice now.. had my first travellers' sickness yesterday.. weak.. sick.. vomit.. and all... :( and yeah- i did try curry- but no curry for me for a while......
