The Namesake

This weekend we saw The Namesake. It was one of those rare times where I enjoyed the movie as much as the book and I recommend both! I especially loved the parts that were filmed in India. As well as she describes it in the book, it makes a huge difference to actually see it. I had no idea the Taj Mahal was SO white. I always thought of it as an off-white like the cover of the book, but that's probably because I've just seen many pictures of it at sunset where the building is reflecting all the colors.

Edit: This article turned up on Yahoo today about how air pollution is turning the Taj Mahal yellow.
