BIRTHDAY BLUES.

Last night was the best night we have had in India! (Read Campbell’s post below)

Today is not quite as good. Grounded in Delhi. We were hoping to only spend one night here, but the Ambassador needs some more mechanical work done and as the locals say, “India is Great…ALWAYS late!”

It has gone from half a day to a full day to 2-3 days for the work to be done!

It’s my birthday today, I’m 29 years old. It’s not that special, but it would be nice if something actually took the time we were told for a nice birthday present.

Zaffar and his crew at indianbackpackers.com and doing their best to make this trip and the car happen, but India is against us. Everything is taking so much longer than they think it will take. We have a joke that 10 minutes = 1 hour and 1 hour = 1 day here in India.

Happy birthday to me?

Pa
