Teri - The trip over to India went better than we hoped - seamless actually! We travelled Winnpeg to Toronto to Frankfurt to Mumbai, where we spent the night in the airport, before taking a domestic flight to Bhopal, which is in the state of Madya Pradesh, in central India.
We sat with an elderly Gujarati lady on the flight to Mumbai. She was sitting in my seat by the window and insisted she was in the right seat. Indian passengers behind us convinced her she was in the wrong seat, but she stated she wanted to sit by the window - whatever, I preferred being on the aisle anyway. She was very friendly and educated us about the Indian meal we were served on the plane, including a mixture of seeds that are traditionally chewed after a meal to freshen one's breath.
That's all I could come up with for an interesting tidbit about the flights!
