I haven't been as nervous as I thought I might be - only one little outburst yesterday after calling Air India three times to try to figure out their baggage weight limits and fearing that I may never understand English with an Indian accent. My friend Moira reassured me today - if she could understand English in Kenya, I can understand it in India. Anyways, there are definitely jitters but no serious concerns - I know I can get there on my own, and once I'm in Bangalore, there will be plenty of people to help me figure out what happens next.
It has been great to receive all the support from my family and friends this month as I've been preparing for my journey. Whether they would ever want to go to India or not, they have shown me that they believe I am capable and ready for this adventure. That rocks!
Bye Bye USA!
