Almost time to leave...

Hello to our "followers" and anyone else reading this pre-departure tidbit.
Maybe I shouldn't have left all my packing until the night before? I realize this now at 12:36 a.m. of the day we are catching our flight to India! Everything fit in the backpack on the first go (barely!) so I'm not doing a re-pack...although I am looking forward to purging a few items once I realize that I really don't need that extra pair of socks. Needless to say, Teri and I are exhausted and it's a good thing we were well fueled up with ham & potatoes at Ma & Pa Wilson's at suppertime. We're sure looking forward to finally getting on that plane and starting the long journey to our first destination in India!
Our first stay is Bhopal to visit our world vision sponsor child Aman in the project there - we'll get to Bhopal early Wednesday morning and world vision staff are supposed to be at the airport to meet us and take us to our hotel. Our visit with Aman is on Thursday and we'll spend Friday checking out points of interest around Bhopal before taking the train to Delhi on Saturday. Other than looking for evidence of the 1984 gas tragedy, I'm not exactly sure at this point what we'll find in Bhopal! I'm sure there are plenty of sights...
Thanks to everyone taking an interest in this blog, we hope to have lots of stories and pictures for you over the next few months!
