We were scheduled to be at the orphanage in Haridwar tomorrow, but one of the teenage volunteers is having emergency dental work tomorrow here in Delhi, so I’m here another two days. I switched hotels and neighborhoods, and I’m so much happier here!

It is more the “India” I had expected… wonderful textile market, tons of people, rickshaws, motorcycles, taxis, cows, etc. down a narrow street (cows wander loose)… it’s also the happening place, it seems, for foreigners… so lots of dreadlocks and henna tattoos and cigarettes and meaningful discussions over chai. Yesterday was the hottest day of the year in India at 45C. Bye for now!
