Feeling like Royalty in India

2 days into India... Bethany and I are getting spoiled! We feel like royalty because we've been staying with my father-in-law (Bethany's dad, duh) in 5 star hotels, complete with cocktail parties and fancy dinners with really yummy food. He's here on a business trip so everything is quite nice, long as we stay with him, haha. He flies off to China in a couple days, so then Bethany and I will be alone in India, back on our $10/day budget... bummer!

Yesterday we had a fun day touring around seeing the sights in Chennai, India's 4th largest city. Tonight we'll fly to Delhi, and then I'm not sure where...

I was totally impulsive in Bangkok a few days ago, and bought a custom tailored cashmere suit, for $200. In the US, it would cost well over $600, so I guess it's a good deal. It will come in handy for some of our weddings this summer too...
How do you think the "long hair/beard/wrinkly suit" look is looking on me? haha

Nice suit man! I was wondering about how you were traveling with such a nice get up! Love it!
