Out of India

We’ve been out of India for about six days now. We couldn’t go straight home of course, that would have been too direct. It wouldn’t have felt right going straight from India back home to Canada. Plus when you are half way around the world you have to take advantage of the travel opportunities – well, we do anyway.

So we chose Greece. An easy 4 hrs from Bangalore to Doha, a 2 hr stopover and another 4 hrs to Athens. And there we were, out of the place we’ve called home for two years and plopped into a western country. The start of new beginnings.

And just like that we adapt: lane driving, short shorts, tank tops, fresh fruit (cherries, peaches), huge plates of food, garbage cans. No sari’s, no burqas, no three wheelers…

We adapt quickly, perhaps too quickly. I’m thankful for my blog now and all the photos so that we don’t forget. The things we learned in India, the things we want to change about the way we live in the western world – to not get caught up in the rat race – is it possible?
