Day –2. Getting ready to go

Day –2. Well, I have done all I could possibly do to get ready for the trip. It was, as always, a killer effort to try to set all affairs in order before a long absence, so I am pretty exhausted by now. The biggest accomplishment was to finish the library, bringing to an end one and a half years of construction and endless detailing. But it looks fabulous, don’t you think?







I am now in Chico, California, spending a couple of days with Faby and DJ. Sunday night I will go with Norma and Evan to their house in Saint Helena, and Norma will drive me to Oakland airport for a very early departure on Monday. Frankfurt, here I come!

The first leg of the trip will be:
February 12 – Arrive in Frankfurt and join Chrissy and Gustav Kobberger, as well as the other members of the India travel party
February 14 Fly to New Delhi
February 14-17 New Delhi and surroundings (including Agra and Sariska)
February 17-19 Jaipur and surroundings
February 19-20 Pushkar and surroundings (the Deccan Plateau)
February 20-22 Udaipur and surroundings
February 22 Fly to Aurangabad
February 22-26 Aurangabad and surroundings
February 26 Fly to Mumbai
February 26-27 Mumbai (AKA Bombay)
February 28 Fly back to Frankfurt

This is Gustav (12th of Feb. 2008; 5 pm): Coming home from Work, crazy about saying Hello to Horacio, rushing into the house and smashing my briefcase into the corner... "STOPP:::WILL YOU BE QUIET - HORACIO JUST STARTED TO TAKE A BEAUTY NAP ON THE SOFA" was the gentle advice of my wife Christine. I did not need long refelcting the situation until I outed myself even more seriously by answering: " That might take weeks?!"
