I am in India. With the exception of last night (when it was 3am, the guy coming to meet us had got our arrival time wrong by 12 hours, and we were hearded into a taxi without any lights) all is sunshine joy and happiness. Well, so far. I mean, we haven't been here for 24 hours yet, anything could happen. But the plane hasn't fallen out of the sky, the hotel is nice and clean, and the other people on the trip are pleasent and friendly. And have lots of Tilly Hats. Matthew would approve. I do miss Matthew :-( But this is all very exciting and fun. the_alchemist is here too.

Still a bit nervous. Still hoping for a safe return. But excited and happy and in love with the pretty friendly Indians in their gorgeous clothes too. And the obligation to drink lots of G+T for medicinal reasons.

I don't think I'm going to have any more spare money or time for the Internet until I get to Delhi now, so don't worry if you don't hear from me. I am keeping a paper journal which I may type up, but <lj user=the_alchemist is keeping one which I am sure will be more interesting.

Oh, err, yes, that's me. Small world! Or rather, not a small world, what with the whole being in India thing. Girton and India in one week, that's statistically unlikely :-)

I wouldn't say thank you too much, that's the kettle that was advertised as "broken kettle". How's he getting on with it?

oo sorry if we forgot to mention that - our first experience in India was a taxi driver we couldn't communicate with driving the wrong way down a dual carriage way the wrong way, and no, no lights, seatbelts etc etc!!
Should have talked about it a bit more really!

Hope you're acclimatising ok and having fun. Glad you've got a good hotel :)
