Here are just a few shots Ryan took while we shot some B-roll around Delhi today. We met with Mia briefly later in the afternoon; she has been feeling sick for the past few days, so please pray for her. We are all scheduled to fly together to Manali first thing in the morning for five days and I am so looking forward to a break from this 100+ degree weather.

After seven months of waiting — the Media Team has finally arrived in India. Praise!! I have to say, it feels absolutely unreal; when a trip gets postponed for so long, part of you wonders if it’s ever going to happen. It wasn’t until we were off the plane and walking towards Customs that I was finally able to feel butterflies of excitement; we have arrived — and without any complications.
For having travelled nearly twenty-four hours and jumping 12.5 hours ahead of our time zone, I can speak for us all — we’re a very spry group. Fully awake and eager to get out and start exploring Old Delhi. We stepped out of the airport at 7am local time and were greeted by one of our hosts and the most wonderfully warm overcast morning. Upon arriving at our guesthouse, the air was filled with the scent of spiced chai — nothing at all like “an assault to my senses” as many people have warned about. I suspect that we will have that experience at some point, but I’m glad for the lovely welcome.
It is official — as spring has sprung in Vancouver, so too, it has in India. We are looking forward to the snow melting from the runway in Leh that had prevented us from journeying any earlier. The Media Team trip that was supposed to have taken place last September is now scheduled for May and we couldn’t be more excited.
