We leave in less than a month

We leave in less than a month. Yes, it's true. I can't believe it. I'm very nervous. I'm also very, very excited. We've purchased tickets and our itinerary is becoming clear. The last major thing we need to work out is what backpack I'm going to take and the immunization stuff.

Walking around Coeur d' Alene I can hardly imagine being in India. CDA is so safe and familiar to me. Soon I will be on the other side of the globe in a foreign country, where I'm the minority.


After India I'm going to Holland for sure. I'll get to Holland in late February (I forgot the actual day). I'll return to the states on May 18 (I believe). I'm really excited to see Freek. I think that after India Holland will be much easier to navigate. But we'll see.

You are going to ahve a great time. I cannot wait to read all about your adventure. I am assuming you have read Shantaram just to get in the India mood, right?

I actually didn't read Shantaram. I read a book called "Son of the Circus" by John Irving. It was about India. My mom and I are here in Cochin and we love it! Perhaps we can meet up while you are here. We will see.
