I already said it, but I re-confirm it. We have received more visits in Delhi in five months than in DC in five years.
And yesterday evening I had a drink with Garvey, who passed by Delhi on his way back from Hyderabad to DC.
Garvey, who works at the International Relations Office of NASA, was here in India to discuss a partnership program between NASA and ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organization. He confessed me, with a bit of disappointment, that it took four years and half to sign an agreement with ISRO.
Well, according to my experience in India, there is nothing to be disappointed about. On the contrary, I consider it quite an achievement!
By the way, Garvey, did you ask me whether it was safe to leave my scooter parked outside unattended? Well, when I left the hotel, I couldn't find it anymore. But this is another story…
