Our friend Vipul took us to the Chetna Organic Headquarters, not so far away, and introduced us to the team.

It was already starting to get hot outside.
After meeting with some of Chetna’s employees, Lance, Vipul, and I headed north on a six-hour ride to Adilabad.
We stopped on the way for the most delicious curry I have ever eaten. Then we arrived at what is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
Vipul assures us in a jovial manner that it is the only hotel within 200 miles – and that we should try to get used to it. I threaten him with a slice of mango but to no avail. We are all jet-lagged beyond reason so don’t notice much else about the hotel. Thank goodness!
Key learnings from the day:
“Chetna” means “awakening awareness” in Sanscrit.
“Hotel” is a relative term.
I feel my awareness awakening.
I am loving my time in India.
