We're Here

We arrived safely in Kolkata this morning. All of our flights were on time and relatively smooth! The dry air didn't help my sinuses, but they are recoverng thanks to humid India :) We took the shuttle between airports in New Delhi which was WAY easier and better than a prepaid cab adventure - and it was free! Our driver from the Kenilworth was waiting when we got to Kolkata, and we were so glad to see him. Neither of us is capable of sleeping on a plane (I even took sleep meds, and it bought me about 20 minutes of sleep), so we were exhausted.

We slept all day today, will venture out for dinner soon, and then get everything ready for tomorrow. We miss our babies, but we are SO excited to meet Mason!

So excited that you are there! I was thinking of you the whole travel day wondering where you were along the journey. It must be nice to have a little experience under your belt this go-around. I hope that will allow you to enjoy the richness of India that much more this time! Can't wait to hear more about your travels and that long awaited meeting!!
