CATRA! I'm so glad you're alive! Keep drinking water and putting on sunscreen. You're such a globetrotting hero. Just like the harlem globetrotters. Well, maybe not quite the same level of hero, but if you have some spare time in India maybe you can work on some fancy bball skillz. Sounds like you're having an awesome time and seeing some crazy things. Miss ya. Have fun,
