South Pacific 2009

We spent academic year 2008-09 living in India while David and Pam were Fulbright Fellows. After spending nine months in India, we thought why not keep on going around the world? So, we spent two weeks in Australia, two weeks in New Zealand, and 10 days in Fiji before returning to the US in July 2009. [Interactive map]
