An Indian Summer

I travelled in India for about six weeks - about five years ago, now. How time flies. Like many people, I found it a country of extremes, contradictions, beauty, poverty, odours and vibrancy.

Trust no one.

Drink full fat Coke, it rots your teeth but stops the bugs.

Don't order tandoori trout when you're 500km away from the nearest sea/river. No amount of Coke will sort you out after that.
