T minus 10 hours...
Here I am. This is it. After all the hours, days and months spent planning, researching, talking and thinking about my journey, my departure is finally.. imminent.
I've spent the last 3 weeks buying stuff for The Trek (yes, from now on it will be referred to as 'The Trek'), stuffing myself silly (a result of an illogical fear that I will go hungry on The Trek) and saying goodbye to near, dear ones.
(As a side note, if you ever want to meet anyone urgently, tell them you're leaving the city. It's amazing how diaries are suddenly wide open and schedules are magically cleared when acquaintances get wind that you may not be around for much longer!)
I digress. So. First stop, Delhi.
Dilli jayenge, gol gappe khayenge! Ha! Don't know where that came from.
The most exciting thing about tomorrow? I will get to see my niece walk... for the first time. Does life get any better than this?
Just hope I don't have an annoying let's-talk-about-Indian-politics-while-I-OD-on-the-free-alcohol type old guy sitting next to me on the plane -- although, given the generally accommodating mood that I'm in these days, I'll probably turn into the but-what-do-you-think-of-the-CWG's-impact-on-Delhi type loser.
For those of you who need visuals to get jealous, here's something to get you going..proof that I am all packed. Na na na, boo boo!
