India -- Ludhiana

No bandwith to upload pictures until today.

so here some shots from Ludhiana.

I'm in now in Heathrow. Waiting for the next leg to start. In email i've described some of the detail of this trip. The blog isn't the place for details with respect to business.... so I'm just going to stick to to the travel.

There is a lot of it.

A: In Ludhiana there is a factory in almost every home.
B: The city has no drug issues, no bars (to speak of), no theatres -- they just work.
C: It is largely Seik. The Seiks wear turbans, all colors. Green, pink, black, blue.... and all of the color is amazing
D: Ludhiana is a 6, 7 or 8 hr. drive to Delhi. If your driver doesnt' know where the airport is, it's longer.

D....the traffic was so bad that we drove, at the end of the day, 12 hrs. to get to the Delhi airport (followed by a 9hr. flight ... yeah i'm a little tired)

Imagine this-- this is like driving the Washington DC to take a plane. And then my driver had to drive back!

I'll log back in an hr. to add more.... in the mean time here some more pics.
