|06:53 pm - First sign that one is travelling to India very soon|
Took my first dose of Malarone (anti-malaria drug) today.
All the clothes fit in my main bag except the big, light-colored cotton hoodie thing that I take everywhere I travel ever since that first big trip to Spain 11 years ago. It provides warmth when that's needed or acts as sun-block (long, light and loose, as my Boy Scout training says) when it's warm. that will go in the day pack that attaches to my main bag and serve as padding for the various toiletries.
Also needing to be packed: ties and belt, this laptop, anti-fungal powder (I'm susceptible to athlete's foot and figure there'll be cool, new fungi in India that'll want to party between my toes), anti-diarrhea medication (just in case).
Then a shower and shave tonight and packing the shaving stuff for the trip.
And Philip and Laura give me a ride to the airport in the morning.

I've loved reading about your trip preparations, and look forward to hearing all about your Indian adventures, too. Way cool.
(When do you get back again?)

Thanks! My body gets back on April 2 but I don't think my mind shows up until the 4th.
Have any Benedryl in the house take that too. Why because people can develop serious allergic reactions to new things or old things at any time and well better safe then sorry. I'm just sayin is all. Becareful with anti-diarrhea medication if you catch something bacterial that is causing it you don't actually want to keep it in your system.

I also have a Z-pack of Zithromax to deal with anything bacterial. Benedryl is good idea, I'm sure we have some around.

Have a fabu time!
SHould you happen to pick up a handful or two of glass beads, I'll bet you could find some jewelry-making friends who would be delighted to receive a few. (Not just me . . .)

threatened to break my knees if I brought glass beads back from India. My current plans involve seeking out silver, sandalwood and semi-precious stone beads.
