Day 1 in Delhi

I learned something very important today. Although I consider myself to be a positive and happy person, 3 hours of sleep and waking up at 4am is not my forte. Our flight to Delhi left Mumbai at 6am and i slept throughout the entire thing, even the loud flight attended announcements. A woman had to wake me up to tell me to lift up my seat.

When we arrived in Delhi, we immediately headed for Airtel. I tried really really hard to stay awake during the presentations, I really did. But my eyes wouldn't even have been able to stay open for the Taj (yeah that's what I'm calling it now, I'm SOOOO local). We had a very late lunch and then proceeded to the hotel which was an hour away. Upon arrival, i went straight to sleep and didn't wake up again until dinner (about 3 hours). There were other sight-seeing opportunities, but I felt it was more important to recuperate so that I can truly enjoy my time at the Taj tomorrow.

With that being said, I'm going to head off to bed because it is in fact a 5 hour bus ride to get to Agra and we're leaving here at 7am.But, the moment we have all been waiting for has arrived... I wore my Saree today (that's right, ALL DAY including the plane ride)! I got so many compliments from Indians and Americans! It's a really cool pattern, and although I won't wear it again, I'll be turning the pattern into sorority letters. So if any Gamma Phi Betas are interested, I've got plenty of pattern to share!
