We are marching….

First stop Dubai airport, a huge but our layover was too short to really explore plus arriving in the middle of the night after a 9 hour flight does not do wonders for the mind.

Next stop Chennai, another 4 hour flight and we in the hustle and bustle of India.
The arrival in India was always going to be a hectic affair – in my mind at least – and true to these words it was.  Having to filling out immigration forms….to almost being deported for not having the Yellow Fever vaccination and being interrogated about our visit by customs agent. (ok I’m exaggerating just a little makes for interesting reading right.)

After finally getting through customs we had to wait probably 30 minutes for our bags….I actually hate that part because you always nervous about your belongings getting lost.

Next, looking for the people with our names…..this was surprisingly easy to find and then it was off to our home for the next couple of days. First we needed to take the expressway….and let me tell you the traffic in India is insane but the locals would call it organized chaos because the weaving between cars by the motorcycles are actually amazing. The family of four on one motorcycle is real haha thought this was only in the movies.

Upon our arrival we got acquainted, meeting some of our new friends for the next few days and visited a mall where I had my first Starbucks…in India of all places and yip we made a video of how not to cross the Indian roads. (apparently you should just walk, the cars will give way… uh cmon I’m from South Africa cars own the roads).

Our new family is amazing, the food is good and we are in Chennai, I think this was a blessed day and we are ready to march on…

Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwe Nkosi
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwe Nkosi….
Siya-hamba, hamba
Siya-hamba, hamba
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwe Nkosi

We are marching in the light of God
We are marching in the light of God
We are marching, marching
We are marching, marching
WE ARE MARCHING IN THE LIGHT OF GOD.
