It’s been a while since I’ve written. I’ve been very busy and I’ve even forgotten that I have this journal. Much seems to have changed since I last wrote.
I am now living in Coxtown with Dr. Daya and his family (parents). His older brother has married and moved to the UK. I am staying in his room on the second floor. It’s an interesting change to have my own floor and to have to lock my door when I leave the house. The family is an even more orthodox Brahmin one. I am not allowed in the kitchen and onions are no longer a part of my diet. The food seems more varied, however. My auntie occasionally makes north Indian dishes as well.
Work has been quite busy. While I stayed home my first two days in Coxtown, the rest of my first week was spent mostly on a bus trying to figure out a new route to work. We had an eye screening Saturday in Byatanarayanapura and a follow-up yesterday. Sunday was an orientation that lasted all day. We might have a few more good volunteers, though.
