Terror in Jaipur

Things have been busy around here lately. I've had a string of deadlines at school, but I'm past that now and am clear for about the next month. So I think I should get this Around the World trip wrapped up.

First though, some bad news. Earlier this week, Jaipur was hit by seven bombs which detonated nearly simultaneously. This was one of our stops in India, and will be the next one I cover, so it was particularly sad to see a place I visited so recently scarred in this manner. The TV coverage showed some familiar sites--nothing touristy, just the day to day things, like a damaged train just like the ones we rode.

I'll probably post again tomorrow with good things from our time in Jaipur. But for now, they are hurting there.
