I am in New Delhi for the excellent conference that Ioannis Lianos and I have organized (see here). Unfortunately, with New Delhi ten and a half hours ahead, I cannot seem to fall asleep on day two of my trip (I was in London Sun-Mon so I thought it would help the time zone transition-- apparently not). I feel like Bill Murray in Lost in Translation. I half expect Bill Kovacic or John Fingleton to yell "More Intense!" in Japanese to me tomorrow when I present my paper on cartels in a development context.
I went to bed and got up an hour and a half later - apparently my body thinks that yesterday's good night sleep was an aberration. Thus far, I have been amazed with what I have seen of India. It is an amazing and dynamic country. I recommend that everyone spend time here.
The upside of not being able to sleep is that I had a skype video call with my wife and kids just now. Let me plug my parents as amazing people. They flew down to help out my wife the entire time I am away.
