Ok, Folks!! We’re done! What you’ve been asking for. NO MORE INDIA RECAPS!!!
While many of you have told me that reading my blog and viewing my pictures have made up their mind that there’s NO WAY IN HELL they’d ever go to India, I had a pretty memorable trip.
I saw, experienced and ate some pretty crazy shit. I caught a pretty intense bought of food poisoning from some harmless vegetable curry, but besides that, I don’t regret any part of my incredible journey to the far east.
Now get me the hell back to the US!
I would rather drink a gallon of Ganges water directly from the mouth of a corpse than ever go into another Indian jewelry store.
The experience is both mind numbingly boring and incredibly stressful.
“Which one’s the cheapest?” we all basically asked.33
Here’ the thing about Pushkar. Alcohol, meat and eggs are forbidden in the city limits. For some reason, the stoners and hippies of the world are drawn here.
I saw some kid pass a joint to his girlfriend as they passed me.
Our tour leader told us “What they don’t realize is that while the local police don’t make marijuana a priority, if they feel like it, they can throw these kids in jail FOR LIFE”
Is that crusty old Ganges weed really worth it?
Our prayer plates. The coconut is holy here. Joan complained “I’ve got the smallest one! Looks like a shriveled monkey’s bollocks!”
One of the highlights of the trip was going to Bukhara, where President Obama had dined a few weeks prior to my arrival. Their specialty wer kabobs. The lamb and chicken were some of the most incredible I’ve ever had… I’ll never forget that amazing meal.
My final meal in India. MCDONALD’S!! Instead of a Big Mac (as they don’t serve red meat in India) I ordered the Maharaja Mac (with chicken)
