The next few days are spent in the small farming village of Bundala, home of Mandeep’s grandfather. Mandeep’s father has come from Canada to Bundala for the month to stay with him and spend time with relatives. We stay with family who have a large house on the edge of the village and enjoy a week of the most amazing home-cooked food, walks, visits with family and friends, and local excursions.
Towards the end of the week it’s time to continue on. We travel with Mandeep’s father to Simbal Mazara, hometown of Mandeep’s mother, to have lunch with her aunts, uncles and cousins there. After lunch we continue on to Chandigarh, where we will fly the next day to New Delhi.
