A window exists and I am taking it!
Quarantines, lockdowns, and curfews within India have lifted! For how long? No one really knows at this point, but this opening is what I have been waiting for in order to travel. I have the appropriate Business Visa to be allowed in the country, I have my negative COVID test and I am fully vaccinated, so the time is now to go!
My trip is threefold:
Not having traveled for over 18 months has me somewhat anxious about the trip, yet I know that once I get on the plane, all of my experience will come back to me and this trip will be a welcome adventure.
My travel dates are the 23rd to August 8, and will be going through Doha on Qatar, which is a first, and something I swore I would never do, but here I am doing it.
COVID continues to disrupt lives all over the globe and I have no idea when things will get better, but I do know that need still exists all around us, which is why I am trying to do something in order to make a difference and create some lasting impact in the lives of rural men, women and children of India.
