I would go to Don and Betchen's place pretty much every night for tea, and we'd trade travelling stories, and Don would tell me about going to graduate school with my Dad. They kept things around -- mostly food -- that were a reminder of what it was like to be in America. Kodaikanal International School was founded, if I recall correctly, by German Lutherans who were kicked out of India by the British during the first world war, and it was then taken over by German-American Lutherans, mostly from around Minnesota, like the Oberdorfers. I brought a pound of confectioner's sugar with me from America at their behest, which they used to frost a cake, of which we ate a piece or two each night. They have cakes at some bakeries in India, but it's a pale echo of good ol' American cake.
