Rahil in Wisconsin and New York

After an overnight layover in New York with his best pal Rahul, Rahil arrived in Milwaukee to attend the wedding of his cousin Michael Fox. After cavorting with all his Fox cousins and eating nothing but sugar, Rahil accompanied every single one of his near relatives to Three Lakes, in northern Wisconsin, where he caught his first fish, took his first canoe ride, had his first swim in a lake, bowled, caught chipmunks and frogs, sought the elusive hodag, and undertook about a thousand other adventures.

After a week of fun he flew to New York for a long weekend there before returning to Delhi. Highlights included twice visiting the American Museum of Natural History, shopping with his mom, looking for birds to catch, and jabbering.
