My apologies for not being able to post anything for a while, Mel and I have been thrown back to the dark ages with either limited or no Internet connectivity. Jesus, what did people do before the Internet? I certainly don’t know, since I feel cut-off and isolated from the world, sort of like stranded on an island where everyone speaks a language I don’t understand!
Anyways, I hope that everyone had a great and safe new years. Although the company at New Years on my end was great, the party was a little lacking at the Hilton. The Hilton tried, and tried but still came up a little short, every time we think that someone has progressed a mile here they actually show us it has been only a metre. Long story short, the Hilton tried to put on a New Years party (with a western twist), a dinner party in one room, a lounge singer in the lobby (might I add that this was some famous Bollywood singer, with no audience in front of her), and the toast at midnight was at some unknown far away banquet hall that no one could find! In any case we still rang in the New Years with some Vodka + tonic!
Anyways the trip to Jaipur, Udaipur, and Delhi has been great! Here are some random pictures from the first part of our Delhi trip, Jaipur and Udaipur:
We did arrive in Orissa to much fan-fare and flowers with about 40 people at the airport. Mel and I were shell shocked and couldn’t get over the attention. It was great to see my Grandmother, and I’m looking forward to spending some time with her! Sadness will become me when Mel leaves in two days, as she is my only link to my sanity from my family!
Hope everyone is doing well, and by the way Happy New year!
