"You sound to me as though you don't believe in free will," said Billy Pilgrim. "If I hadn't spent so much time studying Earthlings," said the Tralfamadorian, "I wouldn't have any idea what was meant by free will. I've visited 31 inhabited planets in the universe...Only on Earth is there any talk of free will." -- K. Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

India is very large

Let the rapid fire tourism begin: last week Varanasi and Delhi, then Agra and the Taj Mahal, now camels in Rajasthan.

and now we are three

I am happy to report that we have found Dina, fresh off a Virgin Atlantic flight from London. That means that I have told two people to show up in India, and have then successfully retrieved them from an airport. Two for two! Everyone should try.

In other news, Delhi is hot.

Unfortunatly, my life moves much quicker than my ability to transfer pictures from my camera to the internet. Luckily, I believe the current quality of picture to be better than usual. You be the judge.
