    India does Mcatt. . .Travel pics inside

    wow this place kicked my ass.. i actually cut my trip short from a month to only about 2 weeks. .

    I did see some amazing things, but I really didnt like the people. .I thought they were really rude and annoying. . and India in general just got to me. .

    I stated in Kolkota and had a few bad experiences with people so that just set off the trip on a bad note and I admit my attitude was a bit off. .

    So in summation .. i really didnt enjoy my time there that much, but did see and experience some amazing things.. in India's defense I only did Kolkotta, Dehi, Agra, and Varanassi. .

    My favorite part was the driving. . unreal . .soooo crazy. . i videoed a lot of my rides so after i put together a video ill share it with you guys..

    Here are some pics

    These people actually burrowed homes out of the local garbage dump. . really sad. . but they were so nice and smiling. .



    The Slum doctor. . looks quite sterile. .as angry as they looked they were actually really excited for me to take their picture. . and were trying to pose all professional and serious. . it was funny. .



    This is where they burned the bodies.... i witnessed like 10 bodies being burned. . its was intense
    they believe that if ur body is cremated here u end the reincarnation cycle and finally reach Nirvana



    The Taj. . im not into architecture or buildings but this place was amazing. . hard to explain why but really powerful building...I couldnt stop tasking pics



    My neighbors for an 18 hour train ride. .they couldnt speak english so tyhey literally just stared at me for 13 hours and asked to shake my hand like 200 times. . as i sipped my Jack and cokes. .



    real life little slumdog millionaire ....these kids start hustling at like 5 its really unbelievable



    crazy bastards. .




    View from my hotel



    just thought this was a cool photo



    clean chefs are overrated

    Nice photos, good to see you putting your new camera to good use.

    I always hate when people compliment my photos by saying "wow you have a nice camera."

    Thanks for the compliments guys. . this was my first time using a professional camera DSLR...so Im still getting used to the different settings and what not. .

    that was a hotel in Varanasi and I would def recommend it. . it was clean, and the owner was really nice. . good restaurant downstairs as well and internet. . It was called Hotel Divya. . and it was located in the Old City. . it cost 500 rupees. . but after spending 2 nights in kolkatta guesthouses @ 250 rupees.. i needed a decent place. . dont get ur laundry done in India. . my clothes smelt like smoke afterwards. .

    I did try and tell you about that, friend.

    Sadly I can't view the pics - it says 'bandwidth exceeded'.

    Maybe in a year's time you'll just remember the good bits.

    India has a lot of good bits I think - I'll definitely be back there before I die.

    I'd like to see up north.

    Oh I forgot - S. Indian breakfasts are great.

    In fact S. Idian / Sri Lankan vegetarianism just makes perfect sense in every way.

    Will be interesting to read robbi's take.


    Hope I can get to see mcatt's pics at some point too.

    Yeah sorry bill.

    Obviously whilst evacuating from all orifices one should also be absorbing, as you clearly have, the lessons of 'Slumdog Millionaire'.

    On the plus side, I've heard the ladies are really responsive.
