India III: the motherland

Although both my parents lived in Kolkata before moving to the US (& I still have some relatives who currently reside there)-- Agartala is where my family's roots are. It's the tiny, capital city in Tripura, a state in northeastern India. Due to its small size and more relaxed atmosphere, it was a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Kolkata. The house we stayed in was the same house my mother grew up in, although there is a newly built second floor where my cousins, aunt, and uncle live. We were there for a week, and the time was spent hanging out with family, visiting a hundred bagillion temples, and eating tasty foods.

Here are some of my snapshots from the week (more below the break)
