India

Who would have thought all those years ago when I started writing children’s books that it would take me all over the world … including to INDIA.
Wednesday, I travelled from Sydney to New Delhi (via Singapore where I nearly missed the plane because we arrived late and then the ground staff sent me to the wrong gate) for the Bookaroo Kids lit festival and also for the Australia India Commission Touring Authors Programme.
This is Awesome and thrilling.
I landed here very late last night and finally arrived at the hotel (after a very hair-raising drive – but this is New Delhi after all) early this morning and then on just a few hours sleep I have presented in a school and also at JNU university. AND I had lunch in the cafeteria of the Australian High Commission here in New Delhi … what amazement!
More on those later (because I am very tired and need to get some sleep) but tonight … I post a few snaps of my first hours here.

Way too close for my liking

MY Visitor’s Badge – at least for a few hours

More soon from New Delhi!
