I'm safe and sound in Bangalore. My Tuesday started at 6 a.m. when I got up to catch the 7:20 Martz bus from Scranton to the Port authority in NYC. When I arrived at the PA I caught a shuttle to Newark airport, arriving around 11:30 a.m. Waited until around 8 p.m. for my flight to Delhi which arrived in Delhi around 9 p.m. Indian time. I spent the night at the airport where I met this really nice guy named Lovleet who I talked to until about 4 a.m. when I left to find my terminal for my 6:30 a.m. flight to Bangalore. I should mention that this is where I made my first food purchase in India. I bought a chicken snacker from KFC which was basically the same as an American one except they put carrots on the sandwhich. Carrots on a sandwhich. The flight was only two hours or so and landed in Bangalore and was picked up by a guy who works for the organization where I am volunteering. Nothing could have prepared me for the ride from the airport to the house where I am staying. The two-hour long trip was punctuated by smog, speeding, beeping like crazy, rickshaws, tractors and cows in the middle of intersections. I arrived at PeaceChild, briefly met one of the organizers, showered and went to sleep until today. I'm going to write a more extensive post once I have more time.
Hope all is well with everyone! Also, I am unable to log into gchat for some reason so I don't know if I'll be able to anytime soon. :-(
