हैप्पी दौघ्तेर्स Day

I don't why this computer just ओउत्पुत my Happy Daughter's Day into देवनागरी। I arrived safely in Dehli at 0035 this morning. It was really, really humid and hot. Today has cooled down to 29c or what I would call a good August day in Toronto.

Strangely, I haven't felt overwhelmed like I thought I might but I also haven't left the neighbourhood। Right now I would compare it to Buenos Aires but without the street signs, lights and paved roads।
ता फॉर नो.

All Kit No Kat

I don't know what to make of this.  This morning I bought a Kit Kat.  When I bit into it, I discovered it was solid chocolate.  No wafer whatsoever.  I don't know that I was disappointed but it makes me think of the adage "expect the unexpected".  And this is how I will get through India.  

Tomorrow is the big day and it's just now starting to sink in that I am getting on a plane for India.  Am I ready?  Absolutely not.

10 Days to Go

In ten days, I will board a plane for India.  People are asking me if I'm excited and the answer is, "No".  When I have a boarding pass in hand and passed through security, then I'll be excited.  Until then, I'm in stasis.  No lingering in the past.  No dreaming of the future.  Not even in the present.


Falling off the Wagon

These guys just make me laugh.
