Happy New Year!

We made our way by taxi from the airport across the smoky city, through the crazy traffic   No one seemed to notice there were lanes painted on the street; they just seemed to work it out with an exchange of horns, give and take. 

There was a party going on at the hotel, but we only made it as far as the bar for a midnight toast and then hopefully a good  nights sleep so that we’d be adjusted to the new time .

  
  

And now the waiting begins..

Waited for the late cab, waited for the inbound plane, waiting to hear if we’re upgraded, waiting to board.

Upgraded all the way to Delhi!!  Yea!  On the plane and ready to get this party started!

I love that airports have really unique art. The chicken wire clouds floating above Terminal 2 D concourse look so dreamy!

  

Rain, rain, go away!!

 

“Oh the posh posh traveling life the traveling life for me;  first class, captains table, regal company!”  Excited to be making this long trip in relative comfort. 

  

Getting ready to travel

Purchased everything on the list?  Check. Packed, pared down, repacked?  Check. Cash, credit, ID, backup cash-credit-ID?  Check!

First stop Maidens Hotel in New Delhi, then Ray of Maya B&B in Agra, then Kedareswar B&B in Varanasi before our rendezvous with the Earthwatch team back in Delhi.  After that, we’re off to the Infinity Resort in Jim Corbett National Park!
