This blog started with my family’s very unexpected journey to live in New Delhi, India. And most of the posts are about that adventure – the travel, the tribulations, and the amazing experience of living outside of the United States.

We are back in the U.S. now, but my Reasons for Writing have not ended. So the blog continues………..

    I can identify with anybody that moves to India from a first world. I moved here after living in the US for little less than a decade & I was extremely uncomfortable & stressed with the changes (in some ways, I still am). The funny thing is I was born in India (meaning it should be easy for me to understand the things & people here). But I still find it hard because of all the constant interruptions, lack of proper structure, uncertainties, population & pollution. All this has been made worse for an outdoor person like me with a kid (hence mostly indoors). But that’s slowly changing for me and I’m happier for it. I hope you find “your” happiness in India as long as you live here.

    Subscribing to your blog. 🙂

    Hi, great to find your blog via expat women! I’ve been living in India for 3.5 years now… Hard to believe.

    Hope to connect with you.

    Best wishes,

    Hey, this is really great stuff. I didn’t know India was this exciting to you ‘outsiders’. I thought India was kind of mysterious-and-funny, but you sound so excited about being in India and all.
    The stuffs you write are just too great. It’s like I am also rediscovering India. 🙂
    Anyway, I hope you had a nice vacation season and also hope you are planning on staying longer.
    Take care.

    Hi there! Lola sent me your way. My husband just arrived in India yesterday; he’s in Navi Mumbai for work. His assignment is supposed to last 4 – 6 months. If you have any helpful hints for him please let me know.

    btw, great blog. I’ve read quite a few of your recent posts and will be back for more.

      Wow – tell him to also check out Girl From Foreign – she’s on my blog list – she lives in Mumbai and talks about what to do there. She has a great blog with some yummy recipes too! Mumbai is more like New York City and Delhi is more like Washington DC. Both are crowded and polluted but there are wonderful things in both places. Both have a Hard Rock Cafe with yummy cheesecake – you can see where my priorities are. I am heading out the door – but I will reply to your email later today – and yes, I am happy to help in any way I can! Cheers

    I just came across your blog. Nice work. We are going back to the US after a stay in India of about one year. Have fun and let us know if you have any questions that might have fallen into our “been there, done that” basket.

    Kind regards,
    Joe and Kristina

    Hmmm, I am not sure how to post my contact details without “publishing ” them to the world. Can you email me from a personal address?

    You should write a book. This blog is great! Who knows, you may just be the next Erma Bombeck–from India!! Love you for your sense of humor in the face of this “adventure.”
