Excitement builds as Scots touch down for Delhi Games
Will India be ready in time? Those pictures you saw on the internet early this week, so I hear, were of the Scottish team's lodgings in the Games village and the mess was what you guessed it might be.
The Scots promptly moved into the Indian building.
Can Delhi deliver on a Commonwealth Games for which many locals here feel little empathy?
I hope so, and much of that is because it is we Scots, and my hometown of Glasgow, hosting the next Games and the "brand" needs to be kept alive.
Simple as that. It is important for Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales as it gives our athletes a chance to win for their country and not "Team GB".
There is nowhere else they can do it.
Anyway, it was a crammed flight to Delhi, but a beautiful sunrise as we approached India early this Sunday morning.
Oh seat 37A, how pleased I am to see the back of you!
Big blood-filled mosquitoes made a delightful mess when we clapped them between our hands on our bus to the hotel and that was after efficiency-personified greeted us at the airport.
The trip into town was interesting: we were close to killing many people, transport police are every 100 yards, and the "Games only" lanes mean nothing to the local population who swarm them in bikes, "Tuk-Tuks", and on foot.
Many head the wrong way up the roads towards you.
People are asleep on pavements, families live under tarpaulins, men carry wives on the back on tiny motorcycles and we are looking to start a Commonwealth Games.
The Scottish flag is up in the International Broadcast Centre, our kit is working and we are ready; it seems surreal.
I read that a group of indigenous people called the "Jaks" are going to stage a guerrilla protest by smuggling in buffalo to access roads and perhaps even stadia.
This will be a magnificent sight and surely the first recorded buffalo warfare, never mind the gorilla stuff. Not my line, by the way...
Sadly, Elena Baltacha has pulled out to weaken Team Scotland, but as I write this the next tranche of athletes from around the world are jetting in.
Stories still circulate about logistics problems, some of the stadia still appear to need finishing and I met and interesting guide who seemed more interested in telling me about his career as a call centre employee than talking about the Games.
To all the athletes: I hope you have a fantastic time. It's hot here, but it's dry now and I so hope we witness a great Games.
But can India deliver?
