Goa and Last Thoughts on India

Saturday, 12 Apr 2014 | Views [283]

On my way to Goa, last stop in India. Train was only 20 minutes late arriving this morning. And 90 minutes late arriving at destination. I got to watch the last bit which was through a forest. Very calming. On the taxi ride, one hour and a half, through ... Read more >

Hopped a flight to Hubli this morning and then took the train to Hospet. I could have taken the train all the way there, but it would have taken 24 hours instead of 5. I don't think very many tourists come this way to Hospet because I was the only person ... Read more >

Somewhere along the way on this India adventure, I've picked up the Indian head bob. This is a very characteristic nod that they do, usually to indicate yes, but it kind of looks like they're shaking their head no, so it's very confusing at first. And ... Read more >

The train to Jaipur is on time. Yes! I'm sitting with a family. The wife must have stared at me for an hour straight - I'm not exaggerating. Full on staring for a full hour. So weird. I'm not sure what would happen if I stare back at her. You're not ... Read more >

Day 50: Driving in India

Thursday, 27 Mar 2014 | Views [265]

This is a special entry on driving in India. If you've ever wondered what these foreign taxi drivers in big US cities (think New York) were thinking when they drive crazy, you will understand after you read this article. Note: I did not personally drive ... Read more >

Sunday This morning we (Stacey, Kristyna, and I) left Varanasi for Agra. The girls unfortunately did not get a seat on the train the day before, so they bought general tickets (2nd class) on today's train and were meant to be upgraded on the train ... Read more >

We don't make it up for the 6am boat ride on the Ganges River. Apparently, there are ceremonies in the morning as well as evening. We sleep in and go to a restaurant run by a hippie dippie American, at least that's what the guide book says. The food ... Read more >

Journey to Varanasi

Friday, 21 Mar 2014 | Views [251]

Varanasi From Darjeeling, Kristyna, Stacey and I got up early to take the three hour jeep ride down the mountain to the train station. They were feeling sick to their stomach so a bumpy jeep ride was not great for them. The jeep stopped so many times ... Read more >

Saturday The train arrived in Kolkata early morning. After the parade of people to get on the train in a damn hurry at Puri, there was surprisingly little fanfare about disembarking. I was sure they would all rush off in a mad dash, but they were ... Read more >
