Sugar High, Energy Low

One of Brian's colleagues (thank you Professor Dev) said that the kids will LOVE pencils/sharpeners with brightly colored, American themes. One of my students (thank you Neha) said that her grandmother told her that everyone will LOVE small pieces of chocolate.

Brian had the self-discipline and foresight to start packing our bags in advance, at which time I realized that the world will keep spinning if I wear black shoes with a brown tee-shirt in Nagaland. My goal tonight is to remove 1/4 of the items beneath the chocolate and pencils, starting with the brown shoes.

After 4 1/2 hours of sleep last night and a very long day ahead, 20 hours in the air is sounding pretty good. Official flight plan: Rochester to JFK to Delhi to Kolkata to Dimapur. Personal flight plan: Sleep, sleep, listen to This American Life, sleep, sleep, watch a movie, sleep, read a book, sleep.

24 hours and counting!
