TRAVELLING BACK TO INDIA

WE CAME IN THAT
It's almost 2 months since we were staying in Peoria, Illinois, going round tour of East Coast and West Coast of United Stae of America, visiting temples, visiting friends and relations. The country is huge, distances are large and traveling takes lot of time and expensive. We could make best use of resources, car, bus, train, metro and airplane.
Visiting U S was possible because Raghu-Shubha were living there.
Number of weekend visits like City of St. Louis, Chicago, Iowa, Wisconsin and Springfield, went by car with daughter Shubha, Raghu and Lahari. The local visit to Peoria heights, Cater Pillar Visitor center, Peoria Waterfront  It was all memorable.
Other visits by taking tours, staying with friends and relations.
Tuesday, May 27, 2014...... Our return booking for travel to Delhi from Chicago by Air India. The flight was at 1.30pm in the afternoon, and we were mentally ready for looooooooooong flight to Delhi (14 hours)
We were booked to travel by PEORIA CHARTER bus to Chicago at 6.00am.
Raghu-Shubha, Lahari dropped us at Bradley University stop. Bus came on time and it was BYE BYE.... and the bus left them behind................
The bus reached Chicago O'Hare Airport terminal 5, at 10.30am. after stop at Joliet and Bloomington.
Strangely, Airport trolley rent at Chicago airport is $4.00 and that you pay to a machine to unlock the trolley.
We checked in at the AIR INDIA counter, no hassles. People were struggling with suitcase more than 23 Kg as there were not allowing to check.
ABOVE THE CLOUDS
After security check we were at the boarding gate and were in the aircraft half hour earlier. The flight left on time and it's lock in time of 14 hours. Food...... lunch, refreshment and breakfast next morning was served, as we were still in the aircraft. Reading, sleeping and watching movies were the main activities.
Eventually, we reached Delhi Airport next day (Wednesday, 28th May) afternoon 3.30pm.
IN FLIGHT

After clearing immigration and customs, we checked in for Bangalore flight at 4.50pm and we were at Kempegowda International Airport at 7.30pm.
When we were out from the airport building, Ravi-Vidya were there, got into the car and reached
HOME SWEET HOME..... BIRTHI MANE......
