Checking in, all ok so far

I’m at an internet cafe in Patna, Bihar, and am now pretty much convinced that I’m the only foreigner in the region. Still, nothings been stolen yet, its daylight, and i have my train ticket to delhi, so it looks like i’m about 95% out of the woods as far as this highly corrupt, very poor, high-crime, and almost completely  non-english-speaking piece of the country is concerned.

I spent the last three days in Supaul district living in the aid worker’s camp. i saw a lot of refugee camps, flooded villages, and desperate unhappy people. I also saw a lot of amazing kindness, generosity, and teamwork. people are good, people are bad, people are people. it was intense, I will write more when I have time & emotional energy to spare. right now i’m focused on getting back to my part of the world in once peice with my passport, photos, and journal sti;; in my possesion.
