well, we finally got an internet connection. WHEW.
When I'm in the States, I tend to make fun of those people who are constantly connected to and communicating via their cell phones (aka 'girlfriends'...in a joking way of course). But once I get to India and remember that my cell phone doesn't work here, and that I might not have internet the whole time I'm here...I FREAK OUT!!
culture shock + lack of connectivity + missing people = freakout!
anyway, our internet card was delivered today, so you may hear from me intermittently.
We did arrive safely, last night, after about 21 hours of travel (this included a 15-hour DIRECT FLIGHT to Delhi from Newark, during which I slept peacefully and watched movies). We'll be here in Delhi again tomorrow, then an overnight train to one of our Delhi subprojects. Should be fun!
Anyway, miss you all, hope to be able to stay in touch while I'm here....<3
