Arrival in India and the first week ..

The journey to India was without pain … Cathay Pacific switched me from their indirect service to Air India direct service … I had not traveled Air India previously … it turned out to be an Good experience … the crew were conscious and engaged … the 13 hour direct service was long and the seat was hard and cramped … but after all I was traveling economy.

After the pre-amble I arrived in New Delhi… exhausted … had a run in with scammers as I walked out of the Airport, it took me a little while to understand what was happening – be wary they appear credible and “so nice” and accomodating but their only priority is to part you from as much of your money as possible.

In any case, I ended up where I wanted to go without further drama and arrived in Dehradun early morning, April 7th, 2016.

One thing, I remembered this quote “Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun” … I found it was from Noel Coward …. it doesn’t have to be midday, from about 10 am onwards its a good way to melt … always take a hat and a water bottle … not tap water … bottled water.

I will catch you up with other photos, and happenings and my initial observations of India, the culture and my engagement as soon as I fully understand them.
