Tuk Tuk? Yes please!


So hubby got over his apprehension at taking Tuk Tuks and now they will likely be our most common mode of transportation here. They are faster, cheaper and much more fun than the taxis, and we didn’t feel unsafe at all. They really know what they are doing. Hubby agrees that we will take them more often.

Sooooooooo….. We highly recommended them if you ever come to India!

On the surrogacy front, I have still not started my “periods”, so my estradiol level is too high to start the hormone treatment yet. We MAY have to stay a few days longer if things in the nether region don’t hurry up and start moving right along. As soon as I start my periods, I can have my baseline ultrasound and start the hormones.

The clinic is closed tomorrow, so there won’t be any update about the actual surrogacy.

We attempted to go grocery shopping today as well and had no real luck. The grocery store we found in a mall had only really strange stuff. The milk was all in tetra packs, there was no cheese other than processed cubes and slices, no bread to speak of, no q-tips, one small package of facial tissues… We did get lots of juice though, so we have beverages. We will try to find a better store in the next few days.

We did encounter a few beggars today, one old gentleman with no hands and a couple of kids we just wanted to hug up, but that’s about it.

Last night, we went to the MIL’s hotel and had dinner and there was an ultra-rad Mumbai band called The Funky Kurtas, they played electric sitar and drums, etc. Look them up, they are excellent.

Well, signing off to have my afternoon cafe latte… We have yet to find Chai…. Strange, eh? Well, we have seen a Chai walla but he was at a distance.

About namaskarambaby

We are a BC couple who are about to start the process of having a baby using a gestational surrogate in India. We would like to share the process, so the steps will be clearly laid out for other couples who would like to know about this journey, as they may be in a similar situation. We also will likely stay anonymous, as this is a bit of a private process, and we are so early on in the process, that we aren't even sure it's going to work. "Namaskaram" is a greeting in Hindi (the official language of India), which is appropriate for people of all ages... I guess it's similar to Namaste, which is commonly used in the yoga community. This is our first blog, so bear with us. Stay tuned.
