The birthday on 3 continents was a success! It started out a little shaky since we had a 2:30 am flight out of Mumbai and decided that instead of carrying our bags all over the city we would just hang out at the airport for the day. Big mistake! The Mumbai international terminal does not let people check in until 4 hours before your flight so we spent the day in a waiting room that had one coffee shop, uncomfortable chairs and Hindu only television programs. But we somehow survived 8 hours in purgatory and made it into the actual airport and thru security an hour before midnight. A couple of beers at the airport club (thank you American Express) and a cheesy Bollywood bar before we said goodbye to India. But not before I took a short nap and the woman behind me woke me up by pulling my hair and pushing my head back. Love you too India
Quick stop in Heathrow and some strange looks when I drank a beer at 9 am at the gate…..but I had a mission to drink a beer on 3 continents and I wasn’t going to fail! And then we were in Dallas and back in the good ole USA where we can drink the tap water and eat raw veggies, need to remember to tip (sorry guy that drove us to the hotel), and shouldn’t try to negotiate for everything (again, sorry guy that drove us to the hotel). A little bit of jet lag since we arrived in Dallas at 1:30 pm and it was midnight in Mumbai — after a couple beers and some American TV (yea!) and we found ourselves in bed at 8 pm, up at midnight and finally back to sleep at 2:30. We’ll see how today goes….. Thanks everyone for all the birthday love!
