"Are you ready? Not at all, but that's never stopped us before."
- Parks & Rec finale
A few months ago when the Parks & Rec final aired, I felt that sentence encompassed this whole situation for us. So much for us to do: get travel documents, pack, pack again, rent a house, pack again, and say goodbyes to all of our family and friends.
And with everything to do, it luckily never gave us a chance to actually think too much about the end product: we are moving halfway around the globe. A 10.5 hour time difference. A quite noticeable temperature difference. An unimaginable cultural difference.
We have had so many good times with our friends and family. I think this has truly been one of the craziest, most fun summers we've had in a very very long time. I've had the chance to run into friends I haven't seen in ages and I've had the chance to squeeze every last hug out of ones I see all the time. And our friends and families (especially!) have been incredibly accommodating and helpful throughout it all. I can't fathom how we can possibly repay these sort of favors, but we will figure it out somehow, someway.
I'm not sure how much free time we'll encounter as we settle in to Delhi this week, but if we have it, I'll upload some photo-heavy posts of our adventures and our new home in India. Namaste!
