Be slow. That’s the only way you will miss the crowds in the flight and the airport.

Go early, stay late. Let the crowds pass then move. Quarantine when you go there- even if people want to visit, tell them you are in quarantine. People want to go first to the seats (to grab overhead luggage space), people want to go first to the immigration officer (to get out faster), people crowd at the luggage carousel. Avoid going there fast. Everything will still be there if you go there late.

I have travelled to india with my baby. Nothing specific to the pandemic but in general take it slow, plan a bit ahead (food, water, changing the baby, for the heat/humidity, etc.) We also bought a car seat which our parents got when they came to pick us up. Buying things ahead on Amazon will be useful. Also, he is your baby. We managed to use the pandemic as an excuse to keep wider family from visiting in the first week and could stagger the typical meet and greet over a few weeks Finally, might be obvious, but have very clear understanding with immediate family on the daily routine. Even if they have good intentions, all the advise and suggestions can become overwhelming and over bearing. Fortunately both sets of parents are super understanding so we could be quite open about which practices we will follow and which ones we won’t and no offence was taken

Thanks for the detailed advice.

I’m African and am dating an Indian girl whose parents are very traditional. They’ve been trying to find her a match. What are my chances of being accepted into the family? I would hate for me to be the reason she is estranged from her family. Anything I should do to increase my odds with the parents? I’m starting Hindi lessons in a few weeks.

QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.

Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…
