Medical Missions to India

On the way to India we left Charleston on February 16, 2005 and flew to Detroit to Amsterdam to Mumbai (Bombay) and then spent the night in the airport in Mumbai before taking the final flight to Chennai (Madras) on the southeast coast of India. We literally walked off the plane from one flight and then right onto the plane for another flight for the first three. We were not so lucky on the way back. We left Dubai on March 3, 2005 and flew to Delhi only to discover that our plane to Amsterdam had not left Amsterdam yet. We spent an unprepared night in the Delhi airport and then flew to Amsterdam the next day. In Amsterdam we had no flight to Detroit, so Medical Missions to India put us up in a hotel in Amsterdam overnight. The next morning we flew to Paris and spent 5 hours in the Charles de Gaulle airport before finally catching a flight back to Detroit and then to Charleston. All in all, it took 66+ hours to get home.

COME TAKE A RIDE WITH ME!

If you think rush hour in any city in the U.S. is bad you will really appreciate this wild ride through the streets of India at night. It was like this from sun up to well past sun down as you can see. Click here to view the video.
