A Day at a Time in New Delhi

I NEVER expected to write a "How I Spent My Summer" story again after I left school, but I want to share some of the wonderful things that have happened to me and were made possible by AA.

In June of 1980, I flew to New Delhi, India, to visit some friends and then tour on my own. As soon as I finished my non-AA duties, I began to hunt out the Fellowship. After a brief false start involving a scooter-trishaw ride to a Sunday meeting that no longer met, I got on the phone (the easy and obvious last, right?) and called the numbers listed in the International A.A. Directory. I breathed more comfortably when a member said he would come by my hotel that day.
