I Thought of a Couple More

These are India-specific tips given by a couple of different people:

  • Make sure to dress modestly (ladies) so that you don't get felt up or groped in crowds by random strangers.
  • Be aware of who you buy food from, as a friend of ours bought a package of nuts on a passenger train and discovered a human tooth in the bag.

You are a braver woman than I Val to be venturing into India. I hope you have a great time.

yuck. Come on...a human tooth. My dream is still India and val I expect you take the mandatory picsture on the bench in front of the Taj Mahal.

Will do!

I remember that tooth with horror. Although, in my motherland's defence, that did happen almost 20 years ago, and things are much better now...

...I still refuse to buy snacks from the vendors on the tracks coming up to the windows, though.

BTW, India, on a whole, is great - the clothing thing may be important in some areas, but in the larger cities, you'll be just fine.

If you have any probs, just call Sukesh. When Pri gets settled in, I'll send her your number. I think she's met Beeg before, back in the W'loo days, but I can't remember - either way, she's heard enough about you guys. She's a princess and if she can handle being out there, you'll have no probs at all.
