Namaste

Messy India

Dear India,

The least we can say is that walking through your territory is like drinking an alkaceltzer, effervescent! One month is a ridiculous time to say we know you but it was enough for us to make contact and take a taste of your diversity.

Namaste! At least this word is understood all over India. There are over 1’500 different dialects and 18 official languages. Learning how to say thank you in all the different regions was a really nice challenge.

Your streets, sometimes funny, mixing a panorama of tuk-tuk, taxi, buses, bikes, cows and even camels at the same time, sometimes hard, full of trash everywhere and misery not scared of being seen. Your streets, a fantastic roller-coaster and adrenaline rush experience, we don’t count the number of times we thought that it was going to be our last moment. Walking very early in the morning we realized that your streets generously become a guesthouse for some people of your over populated land. Noisy, noisy….your streets, the window of your life!

Let’s don’t forget to talk about food. Although we have become vegetarian (mostly because of local costumes and sometimes because the animal looked like being killed over a month ago), we have discovered amazing, tasteful and delicious food. Number 1 “Masala-anything” fans! Food was always freshly cooked and us, Europeans, used to be served in 15 minutes had to work out our patience every
time we went to one of your restaurants.

“Hello, how are you? Where are you from? Where are you staying?...”your sales and marketing guys are everywhere and always keeping this same approach. After only some days, we could smell your hunters from far away, put our baskets to quickly run away:)

“Same same but different!”, “No Woman no cry, no chapatti no tchai”, “Semi deluxe, deluxe, super deluxe budget hotels”,…

Thank you India for letting us in and showing us some of your treasures. Coconuts, tea plantations, monkeys, palaces, forts, ski slopes, jungle, beaches, temples…
Your amazing people, smiles, your colors, your smell. Thank you for sharing with us your diversity, and hope to see you again.

Incredible India!

Mumbai

MumbaiFor our very first day, we landed in Mumbai. Out of the airport, 40 degrees, our senses woke up. A special smell everywhere, massive loads of people walking in all directions, cows in the middle of the highway in between tuk-tuk’s, trucks and bicycles, mansions just next to slums… like in a movie. An accelerated rhythm, an effervescent city!In our two days stay in Mumbai, we visited ... Continue reading
