I am actually writing this on the 23rd of October. I hadn't anticipated how hard it would be to find Internet access, let alone spare time to sit and write. So, I've been writing a journal and will just try to find time to copy my entries! I have to say at this very moment, I am writing from the Internet cafe at a palace hotel in the city of Jaipur, India. This whole trip has been surreal. Our travel group (through Intrepid) has been wonderful - and so far (at least after the first tearful days away from the girls) the days are flying by!
October 18, 2008 (flying to Dehli)
On the plane, first class seats (thanks to upgrades from hubby) - beautiful for a 15 hour flight.
Flew over Arabia and a very large desert. Right now we are flying over Afghanistan will soon fly directly over Kabul. Weird to think we are flying directly over an area we hear so much about in the news. Glad we are at 34,000 feet. Flying over the desert was impressive - it stretched out for miles - you could see the undulating waves of paper-bag brown.
Getting cloudy now as the sun is setting behind us, but can see a little of an oasis belt of delta somewhere below by Pakistan. Two more hours until we land. Sipping juice from a wine glass just handed to me by our steward.
Very eager to see Dehli - bet it will be too dark!
