Day 1

Because of lack of sleep, we were showered and eating breakfast by 8:30- which consisted of mostly Indian type food buffet, I enjoyed the little rasin spice pancakes.
We met Rajeev today- he is our agencies in-country contact who will be guiding us through the week. 1st stop...coffee at a cool cafe- after dodging auto rickshaws and mopeds we went Shopping! It was a 4 story building w/ hadicrafts from all over India which ranged from really cheap to a $10,000 large wooden elephant. Elephants is one thing that this store was Not lacking. Everything was here and it was the highlight of my day...Im sure Rajeev and Mike had better moments ;)
We spent the rest of the day at the hotel, Mike is enjoying the movie channels that we do not get at home and Im about to take a Benadrly to ensure I Sleep tonight! I will fall asleep the sounds of horns...I kid you not...it is a constant drone if beeping that Never stops.
Tomorrow we meet up w/ the other family traveling and we all fly w/ Rajeev to the girl's region. We arrive late and check into a hotel before going to the orphange in the morning. I cant wait!

We are looking at this from my moms house, she has dial-up so its really slow but we just showed the kids the new pics. Keep up the postings when you have the time. It's wonderful you will get some time to see the sights. The kids had a blast at Taylors Party, lots of kids and activities around. Everything is going OK.
