Mussoorie, in the foothills of the Himalya, is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places in India, indeed in the world. I spent a few days there last week and took this photo on the night of the full moon.
I attended the Woodstock School in Mussoorie from second form until my high school graduation in 1951, as my parents were missionaries in Burma. Woodstock, founded in 1854, is a coeducational residential international school. During last week’s visit, I spent some time with a dear friend who was one of my schoolmates in those long-ago years.
I was glad to capture this photo of Mussoorie and its nighttime sky. We must keep special places like Mussoorie always safe and beautiful.
Now I am spending some additional weeks in my Central Indian hometown, Khajuraho, before I return to the USA in November.
