India itinerary

Ok, I lied. This is the for real last post from Africa. We're at a ridiculously cheap internet place right now (50 Kenya cents/min = 35 US cents/hour), so I figured I might as well post our itinerary for the next 19days in India, so yall can keep tabs on us till we get back to the US in mid-December.
