Before to Go Nepal
Dear Mr. Rajan,
I hope that you remember me, my friend Ginny and I took your Taste of Nepal trip November of last year and then went to your yoga retreat - you took great care of us on a wonderful trip.
We are looking at traveling to India in February and I believe that I remember that you had contacts there for trips. We would probably fly into Delhi and travel to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. At this point a friend knows of a yoga retreat in South Goa that we are looking into, but I wanted to see what your suggestions were before we finalized our plans.
I hope the last year has been good for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Judi Helgeson & Ginny
