Carl's Final Days With His Fellow Rotarians In Bangladesh

Merrimack Valley Rotarian Carl Good has spent the last two weeks in India and Bangladesh on a Rotary mission to eradicate polio in the area. Today he returns to the U.S. Below is his latest report:

In the morning we visited a flower market in Calcutta and then checked out of our hotel and tried to fly to Delhi for a dinner with Captain Kumar who is a Rotarian and very involved in the polio eradication effort. However, our plane was so delayed that we missed the dinner spending most of the rest of the day in the Calcutta airport. We were booked on Jet Light (a low carbohydrate airline). When we finally boarded the plane I noticed that it was labeled Air Shara. Even with such a name it did take us to Delhi. Tomorrow we get up at 6:30 am to visit some Rotary projects in the Delhi area, have dinner with Captain Kumar and then at midnight fly home to the US. It will be a long day and a difficult change from balmy 70s to freezing snow. See you soon
