this is a good series about visiting India. of course I've never been there, but you will be, and can compare this journalist's views with what's really over there.
thank you lindsey -- I like that piece. lonely planet is also honest in the introduction to its guidebook on india by stating that you may love or hate india, but you'll never forget it.
in lisbon, portugal there was a man with a huge brown growth on his face outside the pension I stayed at. after a double-take, I wanted desperately to believe the growth was a mask.
in madrid, spain there was an armless beggar by the sol train station who wailed all day as he shook a bowl of change from his mouth. I can't imagine what it will be like to see these people simultaneously in eyeshot.
oh head waggle..
we used to make fun of my mom for doing it. and then i started doing it myself. i don't know exactly when.
Maybe my problem was that i wasn't ready to accept the chaos..
the temple i was talking about.. i *think* is near mysore.. I know its in a city named thirupathi.. it might be the same one...
I got a dose of head waggle at the mumbai airport. while I knew to expect it, I was still thrown off when it happened. I couldn't tell if the waggle was good or bad, but it seemed like it could be either.
