Met some great people on our roof: -
3 Austrians - One called Claus, we taught him that it was perfectly acceptable to greet people from the North East with " Daft C@*t" lol
2 Americans - Steve an Asian American who was every cliche you can think of. Surfer, aveyatic massage expert, fittness guru, philosopher and had a bammboo stick he would swing about on the roof at sunrise in a "combination of strikes". Cynthia was a patent laywer who mostly spoke shit.
1 Canadian - Dennis the most boring man alive. His voice and accent grated on everyone. Frederick said "I find it physically impossible to listen to him". He talked on and on about everything mentioned. Even fleeting comments that were made. He also repeated his point over and over and would use words like "slighty gregarious" instead of saying they are getting pissed. (yes, he was talking about the English).
1 French - Frederick, looked like Obelix from the Asterix cartoons. Very French, never had a tab out of his hand and didnt care about anything but had something to say about everything. He was sound.
1 English - Marisha, from london. Very typical posh londoner. Very good crack and me and ben would make her have laughing attacks by pulling faces when ever the Americans or Canadian spoke shit (she laughed alot)and she would call mosquitos Bloody Bastards!!
Ze German - The image of Hitlers supreme race but really a very nice lad. Really interested in anything you said to him and he loved the tunes on my I pod,so he was cool.
1 Brazialian - Dacourt, was OK haha (french people might get that) Cool, well travelled lad. Full of good tips and place to stay etc.
The mix was great and made it interesting. Also realised who international the English language is.
There a hell of alot of Israleis in India. Apparently they come ater their 3 years service in the Army they have to do. Therefore there are loads of 23 year olds all very drunk . They are good fun though and remind me of what we were like when we are old enough for Magaluff etc. Was glad to play one at a one on one footy match. Won 4-2 with a nutmeg so my world Soccer tour continues with success.
We finally left after 5 nights and have come to Udaipur. We made it with two 12 hour bus journeys. The beds are good on the bus but far too bumpy to get any sleep.
Udaipur on first glance seems very laid back,. Very touristy though. We are about to have an Indian Cookery lesson so should be fun. The guest house is excellent, very hippy, great bits of art in every room and only $1,50 each a night haha.
