I'm here!

I'm here! I hope to make a longer post with pictures of everything thing soon- from the mosque and state dept. interview in dc, the the surgical masks we were required to wear on the flight, to the indian independence day celebrations today-but for now I just wanted to say that I'm here, I love it, and I cant wait to tell you all the stories. This year is going to be crazy....
p.s. cows really do just chill out in the road. no lie.

5 Days out!!!

I'm 5 days out from leaving for DC, and I'm really excited. Packing is pretty complicated though, I can only bring 44 lbs of stuff, which, as it happens, is not so much! I keep thinking of things I'm going to miss, but I doubt there is really that much I wont be able to find in india- besides you all of course. If you ever want to get in touch with me you can email, or facebook me, or just let me know if you want my mailing or skype address! Have an amazing year everyone, and if you ever have some spare time, check this blog for pictures/reflections on life in india (of course I would love to hear your reflections on life in the USA as well). Take care,
