July 2009

July started off with a bang. First, there was the laptop that landed on Rahil's toe -- bang! -- followed by Trip Number One to the Apollo Hospital Emergency Room to see if anything was broken. (Nothing was.) Then, run, run, run, trip! -- bang! -- followed by Trip Number Two to the Apollo Hospital Emergency Room. Not so lucky this time -- stitches under the chin. Then, a week later, when everything was healing, another chin to the floor. Ouch.

So school resumed (after a one-week delay on account of hot weather) in even hotter weather with Rahil sporting a fresh bandage on his chin. But then Nanu came to town, cheering everybody up, followed by trips to the Railway Museum (an old standby) and to Ice Age 3, Rahil's first go-to-the-movies experience.

July 22nd: Despite generally cloudy conditions, we managed to get a glimpse of the solar eclipse that was total in some parts of India (here in Delhi is was 84%).

Still no monsoon to speak of. It continues to be dreadfully hot and humid.
