Slumdog Millionaire

Every once in a while you come across something that stirs your soul and moves you in such a way that it just has to be shared. That is how I feel about Slumdog Millionaire. This movie is brilliant, from the music and vibrant colors to the amazing cinematography and story. This is a beautiful film that you won't want to miss out on. Go see it, and when you do let me know what you thought. 

Aaron and I especially liked the movie because it reminded us of our time that we spent in India. It brought back memories of riding the autorickshaws and trains, watching cricket games and bollywood films, having chai tea and chapati bread everyday... Those are three months that we will never forget.

Here are some pictures from that time, when I was just 19 years old!
