Rishikesh, India, February 15, 2023

No phone call, no email!  What an outfit!  One email that did arrive was an evaluation of CAA and they failed, big time.

I called again this morning and finally worked with someone who knew what she was doing.  In less than an hour, I had my flight-

It’s a good one too - 2 direct flights.   They’re going to send a car to take me to Delhi too which makes a lot more sense than trying to fly out of DED to Delhi and then onward.

The tailor was finally open.  What a job!-

How he happened to have perfectly matching fabric, I don’t know!

I said farewell to my class-

They’re from America, the UK, Peru, Germany, Finland and India.  

My favourite teacher - Sonu Ji-

It’s nice to finally have a plan and a day to get organized and say my goodbyes.

I had an Ayurvedic massage which is different from the massages I usually get.  In Ayurveda, the 5 elements found in all living things - space, fire, earth, sir and water are the building blocks of life.  They combine to create doshas which are mind/body principles.  They are vats- air and space, kasha- water and earth and pitta- fire and water.  During a massage, the doshas are balanced.  Sounds kind of hokey to me!  The masseuses used a nice smelling oil and rubbed and tapped almost my whole body.

I don’t feel well, and it’s not the hernia.  I feel like I’m slowly being poisoned and or starved to death.  I’m desperate for food I like - salad, grilled meat, berries, eggs, Greek yogurt, and on and on.  I’ll be glad to be out of here but I am disappointed to be missing the last month.  However, just the idea of moving on every couple of days exhausts me.  I think I’m too old for this.
