At Frankfurt I bumped into Knut and Will, so we had a brief pow-wow on the state of the world. the state always seems to change just as you start on a trip, doesn't it. After a long but uneventful flight (with Golman 3 as in-flight Bollywood, most excellent) we were greeted with chirping birds in the arrivals hall of BLR, and outside we got a warm welcome from the volunteers. There are four hours of sleep before the day trip tomorrow. Good night.
