A Blur of Details

This is page one of fifteen.
The expedition so far has been a blur of details:
  • hotel reservations
  • plane reservations
  • passports and visas
How long does it take to drive from Mammalapuram to the Chennai airport? Can we use our ATM cards in India? Will our cell-phones work there?  What should we bring?  Imagine a two-week family vacation to India - with 27 family members!  

Thankfully we’ve been supported so well by so many people: Sue Odell, the Adminstrative Assistant in University Studies, the good patient folks in Accounting, including Tom O’Neill and Tracy Ogren, Ben Oliver of the Outdoor Education Program, Communications and ITS, the Print Shop and the Colgate Book Store.  It’s truly been a team effort, and though it’s a challenge sometimes to work across all the different parts of the university, that’s what makes it fun too.

I have a feeling our suitcases will be stuffed with some well-deserved presents from India on the return journey.
