Sab kutch tik hai! (Everything is great) as we prepare for our early morning flight over the Himalaya to Ladakh. The last two days taking around Delhi have been filled with new sights, sounds, tastes, smells and gallons of chai and water.
The group has been getting to know each others' habits and quirks as we have navigated our way through bustling markets and holy sites in the Hindu, Muslim and Sikh traditions. Harrison led a lively discussion about religion and spirituality that is serving to ground our interactions in these vibrant communities in our own personal experiences. We look forward to more dialogue and getting to know each other slowly, slowly. Our bodies were fed by yoga and meditation this morning; we are slowly accepting the different pace of life that has greeted us since Peter's welcoming at the airport.
We will arrive in Leh sporting new traditional Indian clothing with full bellies from a great North Indian feast at Amit's favorite restaurant in Delhi.
We are looking forward to some cooler weather, Namgial's hospitality, the depth of the Buddhist tradition and more chai.
More to come....
