A Quick Update

For all you family and friends concerned for our trip, I (Lindsey) am here to tell you that we are all safe and sound in India! As it is currently quite difficult to access the internet from where we are in Delhi, this is my first opportunity to inform anyone outside about our arrival and first two days. I’ll give you a few highlights in the precious few minutes I have here.

Yesterday (Saturday) was our first full day in Delhi. We arrived the night before fairly late and so only had a few hours of sleep before our early start on Saturday. Our entire day was taken up with the wonderful sights of Delhi. We started very early at Jama Masjid, where Jeremy and Zach decided to run throug h a bunch of pigeons. We also visited Raj Ghat (the place Gandhi was cremated), The Gate of India, Humayun’s Tomb, and Qutub Minar. Everyone was excited to see monkeys and dogs all over the place, and the people were very interesting as well. We did a bit of shopping, and Teresa got to hold a snake (no fangs, don’t worry!).

As soon as we get more time to write, I will give more detail. For now, rest in peace that we are fine and having lots of fun here!

Yours truly,

    Zach would run through a bunch of pigeons. Glad that you all made it safely and are having a good time! Can’t wait to hear more! 🙂

    Lindsey, Excellent writing – you make every word count. And, running through the pigeons sounds much more sane than handling a snake! Matt Arthur

    It would be REALLY NICE to hear more about your time in India, when you are off the train and able to. In an age of constant communication this is killing me!

    it shouldn’t be too surprising though! Plus the snake was in a basket so I never actually touched the snake!

    The surgical team has also been exceptionally busy. What should have been a normal day yesterday turned into hours of intermittent power shortages resulting in canceled surgeries, frustrated doctors and upset patients. To make up for it, all surgeries were pushed to today meaning the team performed 24 surgeries.
