Now We Are Two
Time really does seem to be flying by.
It’s two years ago today since I set up this blog, just after buying my “one way ticket to India”. Looking back now it’s hard to recall the trepidation of making such a commitment to jumping into the deep end, applying for the visa without understanding how it all worked, wondering about how I would find somewhere to live, and what it would be like to live and work in a country I had never even visited. But everything fell into place and it all seems to be working out pretty well.
Probably the most important thing I’ve learned here is to stop worrying about things so much, and to trust that things will work out. So far, everything seems to have done so–touch wood!
I’ve just come back from a great week’s holiday in Rajasthan, visiting Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, so hopefully I will get some photos online soon. I hesitate to say I’ll write it up here, given that I’ve still not written up Part 2 of the Uttar Pradesh trip I made way back in March.
Now all I can think about is finally travelling home at Christmas, to see my family and friends for the first time in 2 years. I’m not looking forward to the cold though, I have to say…

Happy anniversary Chris! I really enjoy your blog. It is great vicariously to experience Bangalore (among others) a bit. Your post on Mumbai was particularly interesting. Thanks!

Thanks a lot Tom!
I’m often not very sure why I’m writing this, or who it’s for… ostensibly it was for the current and future me. So it’s great to get some idea of what other people might be getting out of it as well.
Hope all’s well with you!
