I’m moving to India in less than a week.
Yep, there’s been a whole time/space warp thing happening around here. One second I’m hitting playgrounds in Vienna, and then BOOM. Flying 14 hours to New Delhi. And that guy up there in the photo? That’s actually me, freaking out about taking a 14 hour flight with 2 toddlers.
Also freaking out about roving gangs of monkeys, Dengue Fever, finding schools for the kids, Delhi Belly, driving on the wrong side of the road, 115 degree heat, air pollution, parasites, making new friends all over again, getting another government issued oven, finding a job, bleaching all of my food, and procuring enough DEET to repel the mosquitoes into the Himalayas.
But hey, we might hit the Maldives for Christmas, so it all evens out.
Bear with me as I launch into this crazy adventure and hopefully get this blog going again. I’m thinking there might just be some good material coming ’round the bend…

Yikes!! GOOD LUCK!! And yes, keep writing!
OK, OK! Everybody calm down here! The monkeys stay up on the power lines just don’t stand “under” them. You will never have to worry about driving because you won’t. Everyone including my Indian, born there, son-in-law has a driver. On your trip from the airport all will become VERY clear as to why! There are good restaurants that are safe in the big hotels. AND…drum roll… There is Mc Donald’s AND Kentucky Fried ( I think) Chicken. Air pollution not much worse than Mexico City or LA on a bad day. Delhi Belly I never got but I would stock probiotics and take them. You are moving to the most crowded most incredible, overwhelming and truly beautiful country. Now, the 14 hours on a plane with two toddlers!!!!! AAAAHHHH!!!! I never gave birth for a couple reasons but I’m sure that was one of them! Keep us posted on your most amazing adventure yet and I’ll be over in 2015 to see how you’re doing! Now how do we calm your father down…? Probably going to involve a dart gun… just sayin’
Please send a dart gun, ASAP! Looking forward to your visit Cousin Connie!
Good luck in Your new adventure. Pray that all goes well and you will soon be home again.
