    One of our milk customers is originally from India and she's going there to visit family, so she invited me along and I couldn't refuse! I'll be gone for two months but my mom will be taking care of the goats for me and I've got a friend on standby in case she needs anything.

    I've never been away from my girls before for this long so I'm a bit nervous :p

    Thanks guys! I'll be sure to post lots of pics when I get back(or if I can when I'm over there I will) I'm not exactly sure how my internet situation will be, I'll have access once every two weeks or so. I leave on Monday :D

    I'll be staying at my customer's grandparents, they live on a coconut plantation by the ocean. Its really cool because everybody over there is sustainable. In that neighborhood everybody has coconuts and two cows to support their families :)

    Nancy, I know what you mean, coconut here is bleh compared to fresh :) They feed their cows coconut pulp thats left over from making oil, I bet that is some sweeeeeeet milk.

    Well I leave tonight, I felt like crying when I was doing chores this morning, I'm going to miss my babies so much :( I'll try and lurk around here on TGS but if anybody wants to follow me, most of you know me on facebook and you can also follow me on my blog: http://lifeisabeautifullie.blogspot.com

    I'm gonna miss you guys! Happy kidding season!

    Hey guys! I got here on Wednesday(travel time took two days since we traveled through so many time zones) I've been quite jetlagged all week but I have been able to do some site seeing. I'm having a lot of fun and adjusting to the food, once you get used to it spicy food is addicting.

    Here's a link to some recent pictures: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=9 ... b6f265710b

    Enjoy!

    Got your friend request :)

    It was a mutton stall, but I'm pretty sure that any meat you get is butchered fresh since most of these places don't have refrigeration. The goats don't look like that though, trust me :p
