I arrived at 3:10 am on Aug. 8th. I was towards the back of the plane. So I figured it would be a while before I got off the plane. Then the stewardess said that the door in the back had been opened. So we got off pretty fast. I was the last one to get on the transfer bus to go to the terminal. So that put me first one off the bus at the terminal. WHICH put me in the FRONT of the customs line. By the time I got to the custom desk. The line had zig-zaged around the room and out the door. BOY WAS I LUCKY! After customs they have to scan you bag before you can leave the airport. Since I only took one carry on I beat most of the ones still waiting for the luggage to come out.
Out in front of the Ahmedabad airport on a early Thursday, 3am, it was like a circus. Hundreds of people waiting on people. Bob and Chirag was just outside and I was so glad to see his face.
All in all it was a great plane rides, just the long wait in NYC. Which I booked it that way, because you never know how the weather is going to be and if you will be running late. All of the planes that I got on had to be de-iced, except out of Dubai (of course). The plane that I was on out of NYC we wait about 45 minutes before we got de-iced.
We didn't get up until about 11:30am. We went to Tomatoes for lunch. I wanted to see Pranav. He was really glad to see me. He come and sit down at our table and we talked for a long time. We then went to Hymalyia mall to get some things. Then we headed back to the bungalow.
We are going to bed early so that we can get up at 5:00 am and go to Neal's to watch the OU game.
