India!

I have arrived in India, safe and sound. The trip was fine, I was sitting next to a very nice couple who helped to tell me what the bollywood movie was about when we weren't getting any sound. Not that it mattered much as I was reading the subtitles anyway- but it was nice to have someone to make little comments too. Fortunately the sound in our headphones kicked in just in time for the first song. I think it was called "Jab se we met" Which means how we met, I think. Anyhow the female lead was annoying but the songs were fun and the scenery was beautiful. Then I tried to sleep, which was not as successful as I was on an aisle and my seat didn't lean back. I slept a bit, but have been quite tired all day long.

The big drama of the plane ride happened just before we landed when an old man died of a heart attack. I wouldn't know this (they were very subtle about the whole thing) except that I was in the last row and all of the flight attendants talked over our heads with a passenger who was a doctor who kept saying "There is nothing more we can do, he is dead already" So that was exciting.

Customs was painless and Sarah and Desh met me right outside the airport and Sarah and I jumped up and down when we saw each other, it was great. We went shopping this afternoon/evening and I know own two salwar kamees-s (spelling?) Also, am very very very tired, so am signing off now. Desh has a dial up connection, so even though it is slow I will do my best to keep you updated over the next four days!
