Hello India. Weather cold. Curry hot. Meat none. Iron low. Lots of cottage cheese. Mmmm. Cool drivers. “Hello Mam.” “Yes Mam.” “No Mam.” “No problem Mam.” Traffic nuts. Zero rules. Family of five on one motorbike. Yikes. Heaps of markets. “Lowest price.” “Last price.” “50 rupees down from 1500.” Actual price = 10. Rats. Sidewalk = makeshift toilet. “I think I’ll wait.” Tourist spots: Tombs, mosques, tombs, mosques. Taj Mahal rad. Special Thali: Rosh’s fav. Slums incredible. Quote of the day: “Look - they are so poor that they don’t even have a broom.” “Oh but do they have a vacuum?” Good one Aica. But actually the poverty is real. And the things we worry about are kind of embarrassing in comparison. Random lady jumping on bus – “Hello, I am your official tourist guide sent from the government.” Umm, no your not. Nice try mate. McDonald’s not the same. Mc Aloo Tikki anyone? Project is sweet. Cheshire (disabled centre) awesome. People amazing. Schools fun. Kids cool. Kamalini painting good. (Note to self – do not mix paint stripper with paint unless you want a bubbling effect). Mean blog. Nice effort Tamara and Nicole. India experience priceless. Mastercard. Queue for net. Maz waiting. Glaring stares. Got to go. Peace out A town down.
