Back in India

We left home midday on Wednesday to head back to India. This time we flew Air Canada from Chicago via Toronto. The flight landed in Delhi about 10:00 PM Thursday, which is earlier than many arrivals. We breezed through immigration and customs and got a prepaid taxi to our hotel, the Metropolis in Pahar Ganj. They were expecting us and we were in our room and showered by midnight. The A/C felt good; it is hot here in the post-monsoon pre-winter season (upper 90s F).

As usual, Dan went out early to get our morning chai after a fairly decent sleep. It is so sweet it makes your teeth hurt, but it wakes us up! He also brought in some bananas and cookies. Around 8:30 we went out for breakfast at our usual restaurant just around the corner. We both had banana porridge, dalia (cracked wheat cereal) with sliced bananas and honey. Delicious and nutritious! We also had toast, plain white bread with butter and jam. I almost never eat toast at home but for some reason it always tastes delicious here! More chai, of course.

This afternoon we will get together with our friends Anju and Sandeep for an early dinner. Anju is the daughter of our long-time friends the Lals. Early on Saturday we will catch a train for Meerut, where we will spend the weekend with the Lal family. We'll be off the grid while there and should arrive back in Mussoorie on Monday afternoon.

More posts and some photos once we are settled at Woodstock School.
