it's pretty hot here. How are you?
have i missed it yet? when truck tickets are out??
It was fucking boiling at times when I was there in feb, so I wouldn't like to think about it now.
im in udaipur at the moment and don't even have an A/C room.....
I had lunch in the taj mahal yesterday....cost me 1701 RS!!!! so good though....followed by a couple of pints in leopolds was good too!
45 degrees??? Fuck me thats hot. I'd be running up to the mountains as soon as possible. Udaipur was my highlight of rajasthan....
Jaisalmer was really nice, but it will be unbearable in this heat at the moment.
don't you think it's wierd that we both went to india on the same day and im still here?
It's pretty coul' and wet here CiCi. I'm good
My information on Truck is limited to, well, nothing. Soz
glad you're okay!
Things aren't bad here. Give us your top five things you've done recently? I need some vicarious adventure.
In no order
1. backwaters in kerala
2. lunch in the taj mahal
3. drinks in leopolds cafe
4. running onto a moving train
5. smoking chillum in goa
Top marks. Sounds like you're having a great time. Number 4 is something I idly dream about doing whenever a goods train trundles through Camden Road station.
so long i actually work in rupees and can do the best indian head wobble
Rajasthan is a pretty cool place
I went to jaipur, and we went up this madly precarious mountain in a four by four. It was terrifying.
Good to see you're still alive and kicking - how long are you still over there for?
Sounds like you're having fun though!
going to miss it here :(
had a bhang lassi in varkala....i spent the last 3 months in the south and only come to the north today...will be in maneli and leh soon enough though!
check out fatapuhr sikri, akbar the greats abandoned city, its not far from agra.
watch out for weed growing in the cracks in the pavement. Lush vast country.
the golden temple is , I went to see it on a day with clear skies and sun, it was glorious.
You should go to this place in gujarat called navsari
they have this huge cricket pitch that looks like a colloseum, and anyone can just join in and play.
although gujarat is a bit out of the way now...think after agra im heading all the way up to varanessi.
^this so much
I really want to go again
I might take a year out after next year
How's India going? I'm sorry but I haven't been following your blog- I don't even know the link. Send it to me or something. I deleted a text from you yesterday, which I'm really sorry about but my inbox is full. You know how these things are.
nah the blog was for when i was working with raleigh....all on my own now....so no blog!
and is it basically colonial india all over again? that is my dream. Share your looted riches with me when you come back?
