A Little Bit Of Puke Never Hurt Anyone

Well, I'm back from India. Some highlights:

1) Overdosing on malaria medication (on the recommendation of a really dumb pharmacist) and being so nauseated and weak and dizzy that I was unable to eat anything or stand up straight for two days. And was left feeling vaguely nauseated for the rest of the week.

2) Cheering as our group played soccer with polio-stricken children. They won. But only because they had crutches and beat our legs. And we were outnumbered 2 to 1.

3) Going to a slum and playing with the kids and washing the people's feet.

4) Learning how to build a house.

5) Being delayed for 22 hours in Hyderabad and getting to stay in a really nice hotel suite courtesy of Air India.

6) Getting 2.5 hours of sleep in 72 hours.

7) Speaking in a church and then doing action songs with the kids. They were SO CUTE.

8) Seeing the faces of 200 orphans as we gave them new sets of clothes for Christmas.

1) Overdosing on malaria medication (on the recommendation of a really dumb pharmacist)
Hurgh. One feels queasy just reading about it (in the unabridged version).

2) Cheering as our group played soccer with polio-stricken children. They won. But only because they had crutches and beat our legs. And we were outnumbered 2 to 1.
"There's no `I' in `POLIO'."
If you can't beat them... beat them. Or something like that.

3) Going to a slum and playing with the kids and washing the people's feet.
Awesome. I'm humbled!

4) Learning how to build a house.
Yay!

5) Being delayed for 22 hours in Hyderabad and getting to stay in a really nice hotel suite courtesy of Air India.
Did you get a lille phial on your pillow?
BTW, I found out today that another of my students is from Andhra Pradesh. That makes a good half dozen over the last 3-4 yeats!

6) Getting 2.5 hours of sleep in 72 hours.
Aye yam shamed. No, rilly!
I've been getting in the double digits of sleep every 72 hours, lately.
I must have gotten exposed to some sproglet germs at the Christmas party or something.

7) Speaking in a church and then doing action songs with the kids. They were SO CUTE.
Awww...

8) Seeing the faces of 200 orphans as we gave them new sets of clothes for Christmas.
AWWW---!

Welcomb bax, Yowie! Sounds like a fantastic trip, all around.
Naz picutres, BTW?
