Sorry to tell you guys this after the fact, but we made an unexpected trip back to the US. We strolled along American soil where most everybody spoke english and things were clean and well kept. Um, well, here's the thing, at our food tour we were part of a group where four out of the seven of us worked for the US Embassy. We became friendly with a couple, and they invited us to see the Embassy. The US embassy in Delhi takes up 3 large blocks. It's quite impressive. There are offices, living quarters, a 'country club', an acclaimed international school, and so much more. It was a really neat experience. Neither Seth nor I had ever been to a US embassy, so it was a first! It was, also, really interesting to get the perspective of living in India with a family and hearing about little things that you wouldn't think of otherwise. Of course, the school and her kids were really intriguing to me. Hearing about their experience was important for me.
You'll notice that there are no photos of the embassy. That's because you can't take photos of an embassy, duh.
Because they are just lovely people, they invited us to have dinner with them at their home, which happened to be right around the corner from the place we were staying. It was a bit of a shock to catch a glimpse into their fridge and their kitchen, because it was packed with products that I haven't seen since early June. Working at the embassy they have access to American goods. We had a delicious meal of a cobb salad (planned?) and baked potatoes, with rice crispy treats for dessert. Yum! It was so welcome. It was really nice to swap travel stories and hear about their experiences.
