Departing Delhi


Even the 70’s color scheme seemed bright and fresh and not at all outdated when found in the Delhi International Airport Holiday Inn.

The perks of flying business class keep revealing themselves.  Our driver delivered us to a special door at international departures for first and business class flyers.  Who knew?  A guy at the door checked our names off a list of all such supremely privileged folks.  It was almost embarrassing;  please note the “almost.”

As we were waiting for our flight, I noticed two things worthy of mention here:

First:  A packet of sandwich cookies in the lounge the filling of which is cardamom flavored.  Somehow several packets found their way into my carry on bag. Move over Oreos.

Second:  A fellow washing the exterior windows.  Watching him was like watching a shadow puppet play or maybe a dance performance.  A nice way to say goodbye.
