We came back yesterday. The trip was smooth. Some sarcastic genius at the airport looked at our six suitcases and commented "Traveling light, eh?", but his life was spared. Our house is looking good and Appu seems very happy to be here.
We went to see his school today morning and he ran right in. He seems to remember the place from last August - could it be? It was a short visit though, we will see how it goes on Monday when he starts for real.
