Lunch with Crispin, Aya, and Dr. Datta at the International Center, as arranged by phone calls last night and this morning.
While doing Internet in the lobby, notice Ruth Lacy's sister! and she, Jessie, recognizes me! She's staying there with her two daughters, coming from their time at Woodstock in the last week with the Class of 1965. Photo somewhere.
I pack and take my stuff to the lobby and pay off any Internet and other expenses. Take a auto to Khan Market as the desk says there was no Metro to it. Walk around Khan Market and end up buying some bracelets from a hall way vendor. Walk over to International Center.
Very wonderful thali lunch with the three - good, interesting conversation on a variety of academic and non-academic topics.
A tuk tuk with Crispin and Aya to the Khan Market and then I search out and find the Metro station 3 bocks from the market. Get on the crowded Metro to the Central Secretariat station and then another very, very crowded one to Rajiv Chauk. Almost stampeded back into the train at Rajiv Chauk - wow, whew!
