We are here!

We have arrived in India!  It has been a long day of travel--25 hours!  We actually missed February 17th all together.  By the time we got through customs and to a hotel room, it is already February 18th!  We left Newark at approximately 9:30 Thursday evening!  Flying across timezones can be interesting.

Our travel here has been attacked in so many ways, but we are safe and secure in the one we trust!  My suitcases are still in Newark, NJ.  Jonnie's suitcases are here and she didn't even have customs since I had had so much scrutiny already.  (They did go through my carry on luggage with a fine toothed comb!)  The baggage attendants here have been very helpful in locating the suitcases with AA in Newark.  The bags will be placed on the next flight out if there is room in the hold.  Then the bags will go through customs here without me present and be shipped to Bagdora Monday morning.  We will have to travel to Bagdora Airport after they arrive to accept them.  Keep praying!

Then...the hotel did not pick us up at the airport and did not have our reservations!  We are staying at the Airport Hotel overnight and will leave for Bagdora at 10:30 tomorrow morning.  We will be very happy to see Mahendra!!!
