As of now, my plans are the following: - Leave Paris on October 24th (Monday), 10:50 - Arrive in Mumbai (through Frankfurt on Lufthansa, the, by far, cheapest option as of now for Paris-Mumbai) at 01:00 on 25th (Tuesday) - Fly Mumbai-Mangalore through Jet Airways or Air India Express on 25th morning. Probably the first morning flight as I'll be basically speding the night in Mumbai's airport - Arrival in Mangalore on Tuesday 25th Stay there in a place I still have to find. I guess the city has decent hotels, anyway, the only "requirement" for me being essentially Internet access. Price is likely to not be a problem. I may also rent a car there so that I can freely do sightseeing during 26th and 27th. 28th and 29th: mini Debconf - Leave Mangalore with last local flight to Mumbai on Sunday 30th - Leave Mumbai to Paris, through Frankfurt, at 03:25 on Monday 31st - Arrive in Paris on Monday 31st 18:10 That actually leaves me with a partial day on 25th in Mangalore, though that day is likely to be spet for resting and recovering from jetlag. 26th and 27th being sightseeing or, eventually any other meet-up with local people involved in FLOSS..though, being Diwali days, I guess this might be quite hard to organise That also leaves Sunday 30th opened for post-conference activities...and even leaves opened the fact that the mini-Debconf extends over the Sunday. An alternative option would be arriving just before the mini Debconf (so leave on 26th, arrive on 27th) and then spend my "two extra days" *after* it and leave on Tuesday Nov 1st, arriving in France on 2nd. The sightseeing/local meetup things then being on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st plus partly Tuesday 1st. Does anyone have an advice about which of two options you would recommend?
