The time is drawing near.
Right now the house has many Albinoblackbear-made piles around it. Clusters of electronic charging devices, stacks of medical supplies, collections of scrub tops and underwear, hordes of powerbars.
OK now it is starting to sink in! I am actually going to India!
Packing is a bit of a challenge as the weather will be changing drastically. I checked the temperature this morning and it is 31°C (about 88°F) in Delhi but in the first of the Himalayan cities we are going to the low is around 6°C (46°F) for today. So in go the flip flops and the down jacket I guess!
I finally realized one of the perks of working in health care when I showed up at my ER around midnight (knowing it'd be a bit quieter) and got one of my colleagues to give me a script for the little-old-lady-like shopping list of prophylactic meds I want to bring. Man I am going to have a tricked out first aid kit!
So I am not sure how much I will be blogging while I am gone (almost never) but I will be keeping a journal while on the road. I look forward to the emotional, physical, and mental shake up this trip is going to give me. It is most needed.
Until I post again!
