INDIA: Look Ma’ I’m alive!

Photographic Proof  That I am: Alive Alert Awake AND Enthusiastic.

WELCOME TO INDIA, ME.  This post is overwhelming me a bit. So much has happened in the last three days (+ a handful and a half of photo/footage) that I am at a loss of what to write.  I was hoping my first post could be witty/charming/eloquent/have a sweet photo plastered across it/alloftheabove.  What you will find in this post is the clustercuss cliffsnotes edition/ blob of photos. Hopefully I will be able to post a little edited video of clips that I’ve been taking around the last day or so.

PLANE RIDE:  Long. Nicest Plane I’ve ever been on. Lots of adorable Indian children running around (one 4 year old in particular that was going home to Hydrabad, India for the first time in his memory kept bawling from anticipation and crying INDIAAAAAAA!) Watched a lot of Hindi cinema on the plane. Became a minority. Lost a fellow traveler but found her in Bangalore.

ARRIVAL IN MYSORE: Very late/early. Slept for one hour before it was time to rise again.  Electrocuted computer/ self (mildly) from bad power adaptor. BUT THEN! Took a nap, revived my computer (thanks to the help of a handy fellow traveler/ my roommates surge protector), and explored the local city (Hebbal, within walking distance) a little.  SUDDENLY EVERYTHING WAS THE BEST EVER. And still pretty much is.

We rode into the city today! Driving is a free for all.  But full of lots of badass old ladies riding motorbikes in Saris.

I have so many things to say. But I will not say any things, because I have to say some thing in this post to prove I made it here alive to my family.  Hopefully I will post something riveting and insightful soon!
