That's Tollywood, not Bollywood

We found out Mike's next assignment. We are headed to the site of India's second-largest film industry, yet the home of the largest physical film studio in the world. It's the home of the largest snow park in Asia and one of the largest zoos in Asia. It's a burgeoning IT capital. 

It's also a city that's more than 400 years old and the region is known for biryani rice dishes. 

It's Hyderabad! We are very excited. 

But it will be a few months before we leave here, so we suddenly have to do all the things we meant to do here but haven't gotten around to yet. It's going to be a busy few months.

Hello, I see you will soon join us, here, in Hyderabad (well, if we're still here when you land). If you need infos, don't hesitate to ask. Have to run now, but will be checking your blog out a bit more, later.

My hubby is the RSO here in Chennai - we've been here for 18 months now - and still have another 18 to go! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions about life in India.

Hi there - I just found you in Burundi and you're already moving. Congrats - we're still waiting on an assignment...

Hi Katia, Jill, and Donna! We will still be in Burundi for a few more months. We probably won't leave here until next May or June, and then have some long-awaited home leave. (We've been here over a year and haven't been back to the States yet! Hoping for R&R there in February, but it's so far away. You spend half your vacation time on an airplane.)

Congrats!! Mmm, love biryani and bet the travel opportunities will be awesome. I'm sure it will be a great two (or three?) years!

Thanks Jen! We are psyched. We love to travel, so should be able to see some great stuff. It's a 2-year, but only one R&R. We've been spoiled in Burundi.
