7 Things I Learned in India

(Bearing in mind that so far I've only visited the triangle comprising Mumbai, Pune, and Aurangabad.)
  1. I want a sari. Seriously. I don't care if I'm a fat, middle-aged, white woman. I'm getting myself one of those someday.
  2. There are cows. Lots of cows. And I didn't get a single photo.
  3. There are also lots of dogs. And goats. And pigeons. But I only saw one cat the whole time.
  4. Indians love two-wheelers (motorcycles/motorbikes/scooters). You'll often see three or four on at a time. But very few wear helmets and when they do it's only the driver - the passengers just have to hope for the best.
  5. Maharashtra looks a lot like Central California: semi-arid, with parched brown grass and scrubby trees; punctuated with areas of lush farmland.
  6. Everything is covered in dust. Everything.
  7. Hospitality is everything. Guests are considered to be like God visiting so all the stops are pulled out to make them happy. I like this.
