He gives me a clue “try holding down the 0 until you see a plus sign then dial the area code plus blah, blah blah.

Found our man (he caught up with us at the hotel, much apologies) room is lovely. Half a sleeping pill then up to tour Delhi

Positive outreach to Africa would also provide opportunities to bring African and African-American entrepreneurs together, given their common history of oppression. That would be true win-win-win.
