In the last week, some essential steps in preparing for India have been completed. First, I purchased my tickets! Oh how scary that was. Those things aren't cheap! But I took a deep breath and clicked submit. I have 2 layovers to get there, which means 27 hours of travel to get to Chennai. From Chennai, I'll still have a 2 hour drive to get to the campus. (deep breath) I'll be flying Atlanta>NY (change airports)>Dubai>Chennai and arrive at 3am. Fun! The important thing though is the tickets are purchased and I'll be getting there eventually.
The 2nd big step was getting my VISA approved! I received an email confirmation yesterday, and I think my passport may have arrived in Atlanta already. So nothing can hold me back now! Except for money.... oh yea. There's that too. Still working on fundraising, and I'd say its going well, but I still have a long way to go. $850 raised. $2150 to go!
