Back in Bangalore

I arrived here in Bangalore, India sometime after midnight this morning. By the time I had gone through immigration, picked up my duffle bag, cleared customs and exchanged some dollars into rupees, it was after 1 am.

The Palms, where I normally stay in Bangalore was full so my excellent staff booked me into the Taj Bangalore Airport. Since the Taj was less than a 10 minute walk that’s what I did. Even after one in the morning the heat and humidity had me breaking a sweat before I got to the hotel.

The staff was as courteous and friendly as I expected, and I got to my room around 2 am. After a hot shower, I still couldn’t get to sleep so I read until after 3 am.

Later today I hope to meet with Stop Hunger Now India’s director. Dola is a dedicated, passionate leader in the fight to end hunger, and I am really looking forward to some time with him.

Tomorrow I am to make a brief presentation at an event hosted by J.P. Morgan Bank, where I get the honor of thanking them for their continued generous support of our efforts to end hunger in our lifetime.

And at 4:30 am on Tuesday, I catch a flight to Managua, Nicaragua. Once there I will switch hats, and represent the board for Fill the Bowls, another life-changing nonprofit.

I’ll admit that the schedule is a little rough, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is just too much fun.

Vancouver Layover

I have to admit that I am happy to be in Vancouver, even if it’s just a layover and even if it’s only for a few hours. I love Canada and Canadians and I always feel it is a treat to be in British Columbia.

My flight from Guangzhou arrived an hour and a half ago after a fairly smooth flight. I’ve just finished a delicious lunch of Halibut & Chips so I am feeling pretty good at the moment. Now I still have another hour or so before boarding a far shorter flight up to Fort St. John.

Once there I will be met by a Rotarian who will drive me the remaining hour or so up to Dawson’s Creek. While there I will make a Stop Hunger Now presentation and take part in packaging over 280,000 meals. It’s going to be fun.
