Bishop Cordileone’s pilgrimage to India

Time for a little tourism

Day 13: Wednesday, Jan, 11

Today I rejoined the group from the diocese for a tour of the city of Jaipur, and then Agra (to see the Taj Mahal) and then Dehli. This is more the “tourist” part of my visit here.

I spent a relaxing morning in the archbishop’s residence in Goa. He kindly offered Father George Alengadan and me a “little” lunch at 12:30 – earlier than their normal lunchtime – and he and three of his priests joined.

When we made a comment about him having said the lunch would be little, he clarified that “little” doesn’t mean “light.”

After lunch he accompanied us to the car, and we said our good-byes as we headed to the airport to meet the group there for our flight to Jaipur.
