I went to India!

Way back in January I went to India for the very first time, to speak at WordCamps Pune and Udaipur.  I left California in the cold and rain and fully expected a hot and humid arrival at Mumbai.  Instead, I barely survived with t-shirts, long pants, and a Northface jacket.

Weekend in DTLA

I haven't been back in LA since I graduated college, and this weekend did not disappoint in capturing the perfect weekend-in-LA experience.
