I hope you enjoyed re-uniting with your family after all of your exhausting hard work with our group. I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the fabulous services you provided for us, and how much we loved our trip to Kerala. While we're happy to be home (but not so happy to be back to work!) we also miss riding through Kerala with you and Sidji, lounging by the sea, enjoying the delicious food of southern India, and experiencing all of the incredible adventures we had, thanks to you.
