First day in India

Well the worst part of the trip is over...the flights here. I got to the hotel at around 3am local time and then had a good sleep. You can see my room at the right. It is really very nice.

The next picture was taken from my window looking at a vacant lot next to the hotel. A cement truck was dumping wet cement onto the tin and then the women were passing it to men that were
sending it down a slide in the bottom of a large hole creating a foundation. Think I will keep my day job. This is my third trip to
India and I am still amazed at the difference between the classes.

I do love the food and had a great Indian lunch. Had a light dinner and had to laugh at the entertainment. A 'one man band' was playing in the restaurant and I heard everything from 'A Kind a Hush' by Hermens Hermits, to Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus.

This last picture is my first collage about the trip. This was a little difficult for me since when it comes to art I can do nothing in a hurry. I guess that is part of the challenge. I used my flight ticket stubs and a couple of pages from the airline magazine. The other materials came for a shopping guide I picked up here. Time for bed....tomorrow is a work day.

Wow Judy. I'm amazed you can blog from there! The hard hats on the women look like kitchen colanders without the little holes!

Love the collage. Looks like a fun memory already.

It's great that you're getting photos of every day life instead of just tourist places. It will be wonderful experiences, as I'm sure you have had there before. And love youre collage. Will be a good memory for you to have.
