Seeing the map on my bedroom wall, looking at all the tiny dots of cities (and very tiny print, particularly for these 51 year old eyes!) and following my romanticized imaginings to whatever conclusion my logic dictates will almost certainly morph into a reality far beyond what I could
possibly imagine once I step off the plane in Delhi. Yes, the cliches will be there. No nation on Earth is without them. But I can't imagine how surprised I will be!
Time flies when your prepping a trip! For a first-timer to an exotic land I had no idea how time-consuming it can be to prepare for a trip that will, round-trip, consume almost an additional 400 hours of my life but, hey, it's India, where time exists in a different space altogether......so I hear! Anticipation is a funny thing particularly when it's predicated on a notion from across the ocean!
