erin's family left for india on wednesday. just so you know, india is 13 hours ahead of pacific time in the states. their traveling from spokane to lax to taiwan to singapore to india. 21 hours of flight time. that's not counting layovers. india is a hard flight . you hit the ground running and you don't stop until you come home.

when i went last year, we traveled through japan and had a layover in singapore for 12 hours. when we got to india, we stayed in kalkuta for a night and then went to siliguri. that evening, we went and visited some house churches and it was so hard to stay awake. the evening was hot (about 90°f with a nice breeze coming through). there were no lights, except for that of one lightbulb, so it was basically an invite to close your eyes and drift to sleep. you did what you could to stay awake. shifting back and forth, stretching out your legs, arching your back. i came this close to start smacking myself, but that would have looked bad to the indians.

i'll have to post some pictures and words about my india experience. i was gone from home for i think 2 weeks. exciting stuff. hopefully, i'll be going back this spring. i don't know yet. the cost is about $3500.

on the way home, we had a 24 hour layover in singapore. singapore has to be probably one of my favorite countries outside of the u.s. singapore is where east meets west. i am totally into asian culture and i would love to visit japan and china. i've told erin that if we had unlimited funds and we could live anywhere in the world, it would be singapore (or japan).

anyway, i got 5 hits from singapore while her family was waiting in the airport. erin received a comment from her dad on her idaho native. even dfo got a couple comments to his huckleberries post "buh-bye ex-mariner" by ts, erin's dad.

so, if you are reading this (ts and the rest) let me know. i sent you an email. i know the dial-up is non-existant over there, but if you feel you need some american contact (hahah), you know where to find us. see you in 19 days (not that we're counting. well, maybe erin is). . .

Hi it's Jeff. We are now in Kolkata. We just got back from Imphal a few hours a go. so I thought I would check to see if there is new stuff on your site. Some of those pics are pretty cool.
I posted in Singapore,but I think may not have seen that post. This will give you something to read at work. Talk Later.
