... or calming the situation at all. We were told our stop was the next one in classic Indian advice - well intentioned but completely inaccurate. As we had stood up in front of our seat to get our bags from above our seats were taken by 3 people squeezing in - we went to get off and were told it wasn't our stop so we had lost our space in the crush. We ended up having to stand over the people that took our seat - it was completely ridiculous. (So we took a selfie for you guys!) ...

Well still no wifi connection since Pune but I thought I'd better try to capture some of the south India leg of the journey. Got off the plane and Nancy, her aunt, and cousin were waiting at the front of doors when I came out. I liked her right away. She has been sweet and funny and makes sure to keep me in her sight at all times. We headed out I the steamy heat of Kochi (Nancy says it is winter so cool - ha) and drove to Alleppy. It was supposed to take 2 hours but ended ...
