Extra security? Nothing out of the ordinary -- one mother traveling with a baby was asked to taste the baby food at Delhi. The absurdity of it was evident to all: the baby's older sister giggled, the security guard couldn't stop lauging, passing passengers just shook their heads. My backpack wasn't hand inspect once -- not in Delhi, not at Newark.
I forgot to take my contacts off, and they didn't dry up!
Now to get Alltel on the horn ... my mobile account is "inactive" for some reason. Their online customer service SUCKS. Their website wouldn't let me pay my last bill. Their email customser service never responded. And they only gave 800 numbers to call, which I obviously couldn't, from India. And it seems I cannot speak to a live human being till 9:00 am today, according to their website. ABSURD! I feel a change of service provider in the air ...
... in the meanwhile, finding a quiet corner at EWR to catch up on some ZZZs while waiting for the flight to Columbia at 8:50 am.
It's good to be back!
