Fooseball Table via Bicycle 65+ miles!

We got our Fooseball Table! Whoo hoo!! We got a phone call the day before yesterday from the store in M-town. They said that they were dispatching our fooseball table at that time and it should reach us in about 4 hours! Then they said something about it coming by rickshaw... Rickshaw? Adam asked to be sure, and the guy said, yes, he will be coming from M-town to Delhi via Bicycle Rickshaw!! That's at least 65 miles!!!!!!!! For those of you that can't picture what this rickshaw looks like, see the pic below:

An old bicycle that has NO GEARS with a cart attached, used to manover through insane traffic on the road from M-town to the capital. Crazy!! Well, needless to say, it didn't take 4 hours... it takes us 3 hours to do that trip while in a car!! The guy left around 2:00pm and arrived at our house at 4:00am (14 hours later!!)!!! He was very nice though and waited until 6:30am to ring our doorbell...
This guy wasn't a young wipper-snapper either! He looked pretty old! I was definitely impressed with him! He helped us carry our boxed-up fooseball table upstairs, we gave him a nice tip and a bottle of water and he got back on his bicycle and pedaled away....

Our upstairs neighbors have a boy that's in 10th grade... he heard about our fooseball table coming up the stairs and he came in and helped Adam put it together (at 6:30am!)... Then they preceeded to play quite a few game before he had to go to school :)

Our house was definitely the party pad yesterday with our new fooseball table!! It's going to be fun :)
