The lights of New Jersey twinkled below as the airplane began to descend.
The plane to Newark was delayed. The flight to Delhi was only missed by 14 minutes (because that one was delayed, too). I’m still enjoying spending time with my fellow travelers before we hit the ground running when we land in India.
Plans for tomorrow are to hit up NYC? Let’s hope so! The flight to Delhi doesn’t leave till 8:30 p.m. It’d be nice to have some fun before getting down to business.
I can finally post my first day thoughts now that I’ve figured out how to get internet on my laptop. Anyway, after about 16 hours of flight time, five hours of layover and a one hour crazy bus ride, I safely made it to Hotel Forest Green. The bus ride there was certainly enough to peak my interest.
I remember smelling a spicy kind of smoky scent. I also remember the people. People in the most random spots you can think of. People sleeping flat on sidewalks. And dogs. And slums. And really nice looking places right next to nasty, dingy places. Also, I would hate to see what an electrical fire would look like around here because there are wires hanging everywhere.
However, after eating some chicken fried rice in the hotel restaurant, taking a shower and loading pics onto my computer, I finally got to bed.
Anyway, today has been interesting as well, but I’ll update more on that in a bit.
