Back in the 'bad...and as soon as I touch down I'm handed a wedding invite from my landlord to his son's wedding.  Two things for you to know...#1) anyone who owns land in Hyderabad (like my landlord) is uber rich...#2) India weddings are known for being huge and over the top.

I really didn't want to head all the way across town for a crazy Indian wedding...but I couldn't pass up something this massive so I donned a suit and heading over to Secunderbad (Hyderabad's twin city). 

The wedding invitation said 8:30...so using my best India judgment and factoring in the "normal" India wedding, I decided that 9:30 would be a good time to show up.  My decision and timing was perfect.  I showed up just as the men were called upon the stage to wish the happy couple best wishes by pouring some rice over their heads.  Of course being the only white guy at a wedding of over 2,000 people, I had to pose for pictures with the happy couple as well.  As soon as I walked off stage...boom...called my driver and back home.  It was good to be part of such a huge wedding...but better to be there for the most important part, congratulating the bride and groom.

Congrats to the happy couple!
