    ... for a tour of the Pakistan India border. Along the way there we stopped at a bunch places. First was a Punjabi lunch place. Second was a lassi place. Wow, they use a lot of butter.  We then headed to the border. We got there an hour before the procession started so we ate some fresh mangoes. We then walked to the border from where the rickshaw driver dropped us off. The procession and the ceremony were nice. It was great to see so many Indians come ...

    ... It is a beautiful palace set inside a large square surrounded by a pond that contains holy water. Men have to cover their heads, so we had to buy bright orange do-rags from a street vendor. You have to take your shoes off and wash your feet before entering the grounds, so right before you go through the gates, there is a shallow pool you walk through to wash your feet.

    ... and the marble is freeze burning your feet the water is actually heated. You also have to walk down steps rather than up steps to get into the temple, in a way of reminding pilgrims that they must bow before god.
