Feeling Terminal in Roanoke!

Stuck in Roanoke!

After the airlines rerouted us due to a mechanical malfunction in our first aircraft, we waited seven hours to board US Airways, flight 4214. From there, we flew to Philly (four hour layover), then on to London (three hour layover), then on to Dubai, then finally to Bangalore, all told about a 35 hour trip. Whew!

While our brains and bodies are not quite "there," we're improving by the hour. Sleep and a shower help!

More later as we move into Christmas in India. Here's a peek at the tree where we are staying.

And a glimpse of women helping their construction husbands at a site today where we unloaded our luggage to travel to the place where we are staying.
