Reena, her elder sister. Reena's husband is in Germany cooking in an Indian restaurant. Reena cooks wonderful bindi and dal rajma, and is always giving me chai and cookies. Overall, Indian neighbors are extremely friendly.
While the men protest, the women wait.
Or they make a female-only pooja service.
PS: Vicki arrived Saturday night; it's Monday afternoon now. We've done a lot already, and Vicki loves it. She went back to the hotel to sleep - the jetlag hits us all about 3pm. And it's quite hot, 107' and sunny. But we have still done so much - today we went to the Mecca Masjid and rode the subway to Delhi University, in the neighborhood of where my apartment will be. Yesterday we went to the Kalkaji Mandir, and to a Sikh Guruwara, and saw the Ba'hai Lotus Mandir, and walked around Pahar Ganj. We're having fun - can't wait to go to the mountains tomorrow morning.
