The weather--HOT

It is Sunday, late afternoon and we just got back from a short walk to the grocery store; all of us sweating like we were running a marathon instead of taking a relaxing stroll. We looked up the weather and found it was 96 degrees but with the humidity it feels like 111! Here is a link so you can see for yourself http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/INXX0202_f.html It looks like it will be in the 90's all week.

hallllooooooo Burke family! your blog is fascinating! keep up the good work.

could you post your address so we folks over here could look up your apartment and view it from space via satellite?

we see you are located on the eastern coast of india. any trips planned to the beaches?

also, will you have any time to visit mumbia?

i read a bit of Kent's blog and i believe i saw the office building where Byron is working as well as the conference room, etc. Kent reports they sit 4 to a cube in the office - wow that's crowded!

and speaking of crowded, how is the city? people everywhere? have you gotten to the point where you want a bit of space to roam around in or is everything still new and exciting?

also, how is the sleep schedule coming along? tell us more more more.

one other item - what is Byron doing day to day? just curious for an IT point-of-view.

over and out for now!

Well it appears that India is in for a real treat now that the Burke tsumani has landed. The pictures tell the real story - Lily is in charge; Erin is studiously taking everything in; and, Heidi is wondering what the heck is going on with all these pinches. And Dawn - she's in earthly heaven - two cooks and a house keeper - will they every come home?

The address of the apartment is
Flat 2C GEM COURT
New number 91
Fourth Main Road
Gandhinagar, Adayar
Chennai - 600 020

All the addresses here have a new number and an old number. I'm not sure how new the new numbers are :)

Chennai is a pretty big city. It is very croweded compared to Shawnee but seems much more spread out than my memories of trips to New York City (which has about the same number of people). Here is a link to Wikipedia's article about the city: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chennai
