A lovely drive in the countryside

It is one a.m. and I’m wide awake and ready to start the day so I thought I’d send off my first email and let everyone know I survived the most terrifying part of my journey intact, so it should be smooth sailing from here on in!

“Well, you’re very brave,” is how the innkeeper Jane greeted me when I arrived yesterday morning in the rain.  I knew the driving part would be scary but I’d thought my hotel was 5-10 minutes from the airport.

With Love from Bombay

Subject: Hello from Bombay!

Having a little time to kill after a nice American breakfast I decided to venture out and explore the garden I’ve been watching people meditate and wander around all morning. As I rode the elevator down to the hotel lobby I realized it was full of smoke like the place was on fire, but no one seemed alarmed and the desk informed me it was medicine for the mosquitoes.

Needless to say, I never made it to the garden. I thought I could handle sitting alone at the little cafe safe inside the hotel, but suddenly the metal detector and all these loud alarms started going off and everyone started scrambling. The front desk yelled up to me leaning over the balcony concerned, not to be alarmed and all was okay. I am safe and sound locked in the room now.READ MORE
