Jumped off the raft yesterday at 2.45, rickshaw to the bus stand, and then stright on a 7 hour bus to Delhi. i have a theroy that indian people must have callouses on the bottom to put up with this kind of tourture, it's much worse than those pesky camels. at night (ipod out of bats), bus dark you have little choice but to watch the road, which can be more tourturous than the pain in your behind.

questions to the bus driver on job application.

do you have no regard for your own personal saftey? NO

do you have no reguard for other peoples saftey? NO

do you have a qualifiation in bus driving at a high standard? (please note if the answer to the first two questions is NO, then this question does not need to be answered).

yes, it is that bad? you feel like your in a hollywood film, in the bigeset car chase of all time, but with more dangerous stunts, and no stunt men, or safty officer. hhhhhhhahhhhhhhhhhhh. instead of getting the girl, you get to keep your legs. they make tom and boris look like 80 year old sunday drivers. i know this has very little to do with anything, but i just had to let it out.

anyway, into delhi we storm, we get a rickshaw, he agrees to go by the meter (much cheaper), which they never normally let us do, brillent. then when we stop, he wants the meter equivalent for all three pople (should be noted this was 1 pound 70 for 15 mins), we siad no, and tried to give him the amounton the meter, he left angry, he then pulled up with us further along the road (should be noted that he dropped us 15 mins in the wrong direction), shouted alot, argued, i grabed the money out of jameys hand, shoved it his, and told him that was all he was getting, and then made for a fast escape. welcome back to delhi.

we're staying in the same district as before near where the bomb went off (50m)but the place is back to normal, with a much higher police precence.
out for a big early b-day celerbration, and then me and kate head east, and jamey is on his own (tear).

since i've had big b-day parties for the last 7 or 8 years, if anyone can make it to calcuta on friday, it whould be a lot of fun, let me know as soon as poss, so i can make the arrangements. anyway, miss every one, have lots of fun! and please please keep writting.

birthday blues
Alright guys,

Sorry i can't make your b-day danny - if only i'd had a few more days notice i could have made it. Really. (imagine thumbs down sign with raspberry noise). For the record, i think bedford has more indians living in it than calcutta and Delhi combined, so at least i'll be with you in spirit.

Lovin those rapids photos; although i'm upset there isn't one of a danny duelling banjos with a blind kid.
Kate 'meryl streep' McShea taming the Ganges - kudos all round.

Keep on with the fab tavelpod updates. A welcome constant reminder to the banality of my own uneventful life! ;-)
