I’m writing to you from my apartment in New Delhi. God, does it feel good to be back. I have a really great story about the entire journey, but I’ll save the detailed version for another time. In summary, the trip went well. I got to see New York City at sunset from the airplane, as well as the Statue of Liberty. That is the first time I have ever seen NYC and Lady Liberty! It was truly a beautiful sight. The layover in Newark lasted a few hours, but I stood as I waited. The flight to Delhi was long, but it didn’t seem as long as last time. I also made an American friend; A girl that was sitting next to me during the flight.
When I reached Delhi, DN, Via, and a third friend were there to receive me. I was instantly at ease when I saw DN, and couldn’t help but smile. The trio suffered as they helped me carry my luggage – all 3 suitcases, a carry-on and a backpack. We took the metro to the station near Akshardham and took a rickshaw from there to my apartment.
I’ve stayed in, since I arrived. Resting and nursing DN back to health. Poor DN is currently sick, and I’m not as equipped to help him as I would like to be! 🙁 But I have made him some Teavana herbal “Blueberry Bliss” tea, and he seemed to like it. I know it’s far outside what he is familiar with, but it’s packed full of flavor, and I’m sure it feels really nice on his sore throat.
Here’s to his health – and hoping he heals soon. ♥
More updates later.
