india

i made it! it's hot...the airport was rather odd, lots of dirt roads and construction. you couldn't pay me to drive in the city. there is one other volunteer doing the program, thank gosh! getting lots of odd looks. but i've mastered "ne" = no. hahah. it's about 76 degrees right now and getting warmer. the view from the apartment room we're staying in overlooks construction where these women carry about 8-10 bricks on top of their head. i keep looking the wrong way crossing the streets. crazy people who drive on the wrong side. unlike london though, they don't tell you which way to look when you cross. oke, take care, until next time!
