A quick word from Dehra Dun

Only a moment to spare here in Dehra Dun, a largeish city in Uttarakhand state north of Delhi.

I spent all last night at a traditional Indian wedding. It lasted until 4:30 AM-- I lasted until shortly before that. There was a procession through the streets complete with marching band, drums, and pony cart; lots of food; lots of beautiful women in gorgeous saris (both families had backgrounds in Rajasthan, where the clothing is especially elaborate); lots of interesting rituals lasting far into the night. It was nothing short of stunning. Pictures and details to come.
