india!

we made it! landed safely and had a great hour long drive to where we’re staying… in the heart of bombay. sara described our drive perfectly… “it was like a disneyland ride! around every corner were new smells, sights, and sounds”. the driving really is as crazy as they describe – there are lines on the road, but may as well not be. everyone is constantly honking, but it doesn’t seem to be for any productice purpose. people sleeping all over the sidewalks, on the center divides, and under tarps strewn over the cement walls. there’s a huge festival going on right now in honor of one of Ganesh, so we see altars lining the roads, men beating to drums while the women dance in their sari’s, and lights hung as though it were christmas in india. it’s a sight to see. we’re excited we’re here!
