The start of my Adventure to Mother India!

I have always wanted to go to India. When I was at a wine tasting for 57 degrees back in April my old preceptor for my Community Rotation and friend Lynne Officer asked me if
I wanted to go to India with her and a group of other people. Lynne knows how much I love to travel and that I have been studying diligently for the Registered Dietitian Exam. I figured I might as well before I become employed! Enjoy the Blog :)
What will I be doing in India and who will I be traveling with?
WHAT I WILL BE DOING is listed down below. I will be traveling with 5 other people. Lynne, Danni, Julia, Tom and Heather (our guide).
