Welcome to India!

DSCN0385To the right is a partial shot of the “welcome tray” sitting on the table in our newest room on our journey throughout India.  It is late in the night here in India; we are 10 1/2 hours ahead in time zones. I am tired but I wanted to let everyone know that we arrived safely in Bangalore early this morning, Wednesday, October 7, 2009.

Neither Sarah B. nor I slept a wink on the nine hour plus flight from Heathrow Airport to Bangalore but we made it safely and friends were waiting for us at the  “Greeting Area Fence” outside the airport. It was wonderful to see their faces. An afternoon nap refreshed us both.

The weather is a balmy high seventies and sunny. Our room is comfortable with a community bathroom nearby complete with bucket ‘n mug – Indian style personal bathing.  No hot water yet but maybe in the morning.

Our hosts are feeding us curry dahl, rice, spicey mango (pickle), green beans & carrots, boiled curry chicken, and fresh papaya & tiny bananas & curd, and lots of tea. We are thankful for such good food!

More in my next blog… Love, Sarah
