Update: I am sad to report that our friend Hitesh Barot was killed by a crocodile in this river just a few years after we visited him. Here is a link about that if you would like to learn more. http://spicyip.com/2014/06/remembering-hitesh-barot.html
Kim and I spent the last three days in Bhalod, Gujarat, India. Bhalod is about 2 hours by car from Vadodara. We went to visit our friends Hitesh and Nimisha Barot there. They live three blocks from us in New Delhi and invited us to their village in Gujarat where much of Hitesh's extended family still lives.
Hitesh was born in the USA and grew up in Huntington Beach, so he is as American as Apple Pie, but he moved to New Delhi so his sons could get a feel for living in India. Hitesh’s dad still lives and builds homes in Orange County, California, but they have kept the family farm in Bhalod where they grow bananas. Nimisha is from a village about 100 kilometers from Bhalod.
We spentChristmas weekend in their home in Bhalod and are headed back to Delhi for New Years.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
