We had a little glitch in D.C. for three days…we are persevering as we just realized India requires not only a passport but a visa (which was NOT on the “how to travel to India” information reviewed beforehand). Never knew if you walked a fence carefully and ran ragged all over D.C. that one could purchase an emergency visa for a pretty price albeit legal! All is well though, and we’re off to India tomorrow, via Paris, New Dehli, then Mumbai, arriving on 4 June 2012, by midnight local time. As paperwork was being processed, we visited the Gandhi monument and the Indian Embassy in D.C. That’s all we had time for.
It rained sheets tonight–nothing like Marta has seen since her childhood during summers in Arkansas–but no coat needed. Tomorrow, the forecast is lovely.
Our plan is to leave Mumbai 19 June, with already many experiences.
