Two weeks and not one Landcruiser, Landrover or Pootrol to be seen . Every two lane road has four lanes of cars and everybody drives around the dogs , goats , camels , cows etc on the road .

Indian people very nice , food very hot and we have all had the dreaded Delhi Belly - part and parcel of any trip to India I guess .

Looking forward to getting home and having a steak , potatoe in it's jacket and a salad .

Happyness is a dry fart ,

Willie .

Greetings to you Willie. Would you like to bring back a "boogie board" for me LOL!!!

Hope you are enjoying yourself and the food gets harder to digest, might make it a tad harder to come out hehehe.

Safe travels,
Trevor.

Just remember cows are sacred there Willie and if you drive over one, they do weeks of curries and not so dry farts.
Cheers,

The gulf between the rich and the poor is pretty obvious over there.
Just check your kidney's before coming home :))

Well Warfer the "Terms" belong to the Layman.. so Layman"s Terms is fine.

However there are more than one kidney so: kidneys... there is nothing belonging to the kidney so not kidney's.

For some reason people add an apostrophe for no reason... in fact they appear on expensive advertising and signs. [or should I have written sign's?]

Geez Royce, that's a bit pedantic. But grammatically correct.....unless of course the gentlemen of the Delhi night have left you without any kidneys ..or an apostrophe :))

Actually the Layman's terms should have been layman's terms. No need for the additional capitalization..... I so often stuff up that way too, but seeing Royce is getting stuck in. I wonder at him doing a double apostrophe ( '' ) Perhaps it is an expressive, though one sided :-)))

F'loosie, a couple weeks ago I posted at 3.20 or so - am that is. I work around the clock a bit these days, but not always so formal for timing. A lot of informal work too as workplace super is in effect. No salary.

I guess I am an information processor and diverter. Occasional decision maker. Occasional is possibly more formal though. Not so much a fairy darmer these days.

John, point taken. In another life I am also an information processor and diverter, sadly also unpaid. But I get a kick out of it, as I am able to assist people to some degree.

F'loosie, I guess another job is deciding which information to process and which people to divert also comes into the equation too. I have learnt to get a kick out of even that. LOL As to assisting people....... ? Yes, I think I do.

I thought the place would be full of Mahindras...

Yes , Mahindras were probably the most common car in India . They looked like jeeps and I failed to see if they all had a front diff .They are used as taxis in the rural areas and the record we got to see , was 18 people in one - three standing on the back bumper where they have an extended "comfort standing (clinging?) area " , one on each running board and twelve inside .

The record we saw for a motorised rickshaw was eight plus the driver .

While there we drove down the wrong sides of freeways , overtook two abreast , ran every red light where there was no police and tooted non stop for two weeks - no , I was not the driver thank God .

Cheers ,

Willie .
