    Airplanes, Paradoxes, and India

    I started my journey in Boston on the morning of the 24th. We landed in Delhi at night on the 25th. I am just now feeling coherent enough to begin this blog on the evening of the 26th. We are at the Jiva Clinic in Faridabad, which is kind of right in the middle of the city. It is austere and fairly tranquil, despite some city noise and the occasional dog bark. The taxi trip to the clinic last night was amazing - the drivers don't so much drive as fling themselves down the road in their dubious vehicles. As last night was Saturday night, we were treated to some amazing sights. We saw what looked like night clubs, all covered in little lights like Christmas lights. We even saw fireworks, which Sara decided were there to welcome us. Such an amazing place. Earlier today before breakfast, Sara and I walked down the road a bit and discovered some cows and puppies. These were normal for the people here, but spectacular for us. So far, the food has been amazing. Very simple dishes, and the best dhal I have ever tasted. I am missing my fiancé very much, but I understand that I am here for a purpose, although that was hard to remember earlier, when I was tired and hungry and confused as to where I was or how I had gotten there. That is the hardest part of this journey so far, leaving him behind. It is not a simple thing I am doing and the enormity of that is still sinking in.
