London, United Kingdom
Back to London!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have arrived back in the grey and raining city of London! Well it isn't too bad...not as bad as I anticipated. Although, I am a bit cold---only because I still have the indian sun on my mind!!!
Leaving India wasn't as tough as I thought it would be. My flight from GOA to Mumbai was delayed an amazing 5.5 hours due to fog (kind word for pollution smog) in Delhi. By the time I arrived in Mumbai I had no time for anything---I was totally tired and trying to argue with taxis and rickshaw drivers was my breaking point and what enabled me to be content with leaving India. I rolled in to my hotel only to find out they gave away my room and tried to convince me to pay triple for a new room...heck no! So needless to say when I boarded the plane for London and was greeted by a lovely british accent...I was quite happy!
Currently I am staying with Le...we met in the ashram...with quite a funny story. While eating dinner under the 'silence' rule we got told off for chatting. Haha, can you see it!? Anyway, from then on we became pals and also spent Christmas together. I am meeting up with Simon and Nicola tonight and then in a couple days time Le and I are off on a 4 day trip to Paris and Amsterdam....after that god only knows what the heck I will be doing?!?!?!!? Ahhh, I will keep everyone posted.
For now---back in to some state of western reality and trying to adjust and form some solid thoughts on India.
