Happiness is...

a new car!! I know it may sound a bit superficial, but yes, we are all so very excited to finally have our own car. No more taxis without air-conditioning or heat or seat belts that are falling apart and dirty. We have a nice, clean new car that we can leave our car seats in. We've never had such a big car either, but it's pretty much the standard expat family car here and we're thankful to have it because there's plenty of room for our family plus any house guests we might have. The odd thing, though, is that we've bought a car that neither of us will really ever drive. I do not see myself driving here because traffic is crazy, I'm not used to driving on the left or into on-coming traffic and well, frankly, I'm not sure I could multi-task well enough to drive and honk continuously. So, we will leave the driving to someone else.


  1. oh that IS happiness!! YAY for you!!

  2. While I realize that I do not, on any level whatsoever, suffer here in Texas, I just gotta say, a cook, chauffeur and a new car do sound so so nice. Just a tweak jealous. I'll have to be satisfied with my endless supply of Rotel and Velveeta (betcha can't find THAT anywhere in Delhi).
