Delhi get ready we have arrived!

We set off late thursday night at Heathrow in the snow, which kept us on the tarmac for an extra hour as they de-iced the plane, the pilot apologised for the "longest de-ice in history", 9 hours later we arrived in warm Delhi sunshine, thankfully all bags arrived including Kay Marie's guitar. Moments later we were greeted by the ever familiar sound of the tut tut taxi horns and Delhi smog as we left the airport, but we were blessed with a ride into New Delhi centre on the newly opened Metro.
We were met by Asha's mini bus that took us to our home for the week the YWCA. An overnight flight meant a few still had energy, so went out exploring while others rested. We all met for an interesting surprise meal, as what we ordered didn't necessarily relate to what appeared on the table. The chop suey interpretation was the funniest being fried noodles topped by a fried egg with sweet & sour sauce on the side!
Tomorrow we head off first thing to Asha HQ, now all tired and off to bed, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Here is a lovely picture of the neighbouring Gurudwara Bangla Sahib temple, that Rosie, Holly Sarah & Alan went to visit.


  1. So pleased to hear you arrived safely! Was concerned about the snow here and whether it'd might cause you delays. Remember ladies, getting sleeves for your outfits makes the shopping trip quite a long afternoon! Have fun, you're in our thoughts and prayers.

    with love
