mail - india style!
the indian mailing system is quite interesting. erin and i needed some things from home, so our moms got together and made up a package that was sent on the 22nd of september. after an international flight to india, it made its way to ley. by the time it got there we were gone, so a friend of namygails carried it with him to deli on a flight. after getting there, someone, a stranger to most of us, picked it up, boarded a bus and drove to dharmsahla. it arrived while we were at the retreat, soabout ten days after arrival we finally got it. two months after the origional send date, we FINALLY got it. inside were some shoes, a battery charger, assorted medication, and some homemade ginger snap cookies made by my mom. (after two months they were still good) so! if you ever want to send a package to india, dont. its quite a big deal and unless its extreemly important, save your money!
