An engagement party in Jodhpur

We returned to Jodhpur after many years, our first time together (Kate visited years ago). Kate met the family, we showed her parents and a few close friends this side of my life, ate endless incredible meals with many loving family members, visited astonishingly beautiful forts and temples, saw Joshua Tree-like landscapes with leopards and peacocks, spent hours playing with my 5 year old nephew, and had an engagement party with 70+ cousins, aunts, and uncles that felt like one day of a proper Indian wedding.
