I’ve checked into my temporary digs in a hotel around the corner from my soon-to-be apartment. I hope to only be here few days, maybe a week, while I get utilities in the apartment, a mattress delivered, etc. It seems nice — they use a lot of local art work and textiles. I’ve attached a photo .
Most of my luggage made the journey… One bag got mismanaged at Heathrow, but I have been assured by the very polite (and seriously overworked) British Airways baggage rep that it will be delivered to the hotel tomorrow. Fingers crossed. That said, when I finally got through all the lost bag paperwork and out into Bangalore, it was a lovely (early) morning – cool, breezy, flowers blooming, everything green and lush. Here’s a photo of the airport.
Today is errand day (bank acct; cell phone; car paperwork with “C”, my driver; etc). It feels very real now that I’m here….
