1993 was the last time I graced the soil of India, I recall getting off the plane in July and being hit by a heat wave. To make matters worse, I was wearing a suit jacket so the passport remained safe. The car journey from the airport was a struggle, I had orange juice from a carton but it was hot. My trip then was unplanned and more a cause of duty, the mood was not great however I learned a lot and my mother and I managed to visit Sri Hemkunt Sahib. This was a journey I would never forget, an experience totally overwhelming.
This February I make the journey back to India for a family wedding. I am excited because there are so many family members I have not seen for so long, I was 16 then, much older now and much wiser (I think). On the other hand I have been grumpy too as my wife and kids cannot make the wedding as kids are at school and they have strict guidelines for pulling them out.
So it’s going to be a 7 day trip, 4 days of that the wedding, 1 day in travelling and hopefully 2 days off to rest/sight-see.
The last I was there, toilet rolls had still not surfaced the ground, I hear India has changed a little since then?
