In India

April 19, 2008

I was finally able to get some sleep in a bed after about a day and half in airports and airplanes. About the only time I had outside was a brief taxi ride in Delhi between the airports (and a half-mile walk after the guy dropped me at the wrong terminal.) I didn’t really get to see Delhi, so my only impression of it was that it seemed a bit dusty.
Calcutta’s slightly more familiar territory to me in that it’s similar to Dhaka in both the climate and the people. Although it is warm and sticky it’s not horrible — yet. I’m coming back through here in July when the monsoons will make everything a lot wetter. But for today I have to leave, and get on board one more plane, and then on and up into the mountains.
