And the verdict is…

Delhi was fun, and everything in Delhi was awesome too. ; Did some sightseeing while there, since I hadn’t actually been there as an adult. Saw Lal Qila (Red Fort), which definitely deserved more time than was devoted to it. Then took a cycle rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk and visited a really old Jain Derasar in the middle of a really crowded market. Will post a link to its website in a followup post. Finally, got to see Diksha after over 2.5 years, which was great. I’ll say it again Diksha, the main difference between you and me is that I switch accents based on who I talk to. I don’t switch between accents while talking to the same person.

I also discovered that expat employees have an awesome lifestyle after being moved here. You get to be paid an American salary (and if you’re senior enough to get an expat job posting, you’re making some heavy bank), but you have the Indian cost of living. All major expenses are reimbursed by the company. You can get a car and driver at your beck and call 24×7, along with a daily maid and cook. And if you live in one of the major cities, there are usually stores that sell a lot of the consumer products (i.e. Froot Loops ). So, in all honesty, it doesn’t even have to feel like you’re living in India if you don’t want it too. Not a bad deal if you can swing it.

By the way, those of you who know the purpose of my trip to Delhi, look at the first paragraph of this post carefully. See if you can find something odd about it. Look at it from a grammatical perspective.
