Did not sleep too much on the flight from London to India, as I was too excited. My excitement was tempered when our landing was delayed about 3 1/2 hours (with a side detour to Hyderabad for re-fueling the plane) and then finding out my large suitcase which was checked did not make it with me to India. The British Airways staff were able to locate it, still sitting in London. I left the airport with the promise that the bag would be delivered to me the next day at my hotel. So much for my original thought about having more clothes than I need (see Day 1 post). The biggest disappointment about it is that I don’t have my workout clothes with me, so I can’t get in a run today. I feel stir crazy after all the flights, so if the luggage does not arrive by noon tomorrow, I will get a car to take me to a shopping area here.
Instead of running, I decided to create this blog and exercise my fingers for a bit. Not sure if this will have any future life after my trip ends, but it sure is a nice writing space for me to log my thoughts and post various pictures to share with family if they are interested (those who choose not to use Facebook, where I’ve posted plenty of photos already!).

Sarah – What a terrific idea to create this blog to serve as a really great way of documenting your exciting adventure in India. In years to come it’ll be a lot of fun for our family to read your remembrances and look at your photos.
Thanks for taking the time to read it, hope it is interesting. Doing this makes me wish that our grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., had something like this to document and picture their lives.
