Learning to fit in

Today was country orientation including 2 hours with a history professor. Good thing I did the pre reading since he vaulted through 10k years and untold foreign occupations. A lot of pieces from fiction books and legends fit together. No wonder India is fascinating.

A lesson on traffic rating "Most likely to be hit": pedestrians, bikes,bikes pulling carts, motorscooters, cars,trucks, buses, COWS. no one will ever hit a cow! The trick is to find one crossing the same intersection...

First real Indian food served on banana leaves.

Shopping for Culturally Appropriate Garments. Choices of pants, tops,scarves at an off the rack place. I hope I don't regret the pink pants...
