Most likely drug.
I don't think so because he down to villa, got married and took his wife back to India. If he's into drug, do you think he's gonna take such risk

yes, kerala
Interestingly, the Malayalis are very friendly outside India. Maybe the educated ones though, since those are the ones I have related with.

I like the Biryani too. Anytime I visit an area with a large population of India. I do not dull myself. if I can't sit down to eat, I would buy it as take away.

Interesting pics.

However, you jumped right back to food photos after showing the toilet and mentioning left hand.

Was that intentional?

Also, @ op, are you Nigerian (black)?

Why did you intentionally do a low budget road trip? Eg taking public transportation, etc. Just wondering.

butter milk, with a strong curry smell.

i regreted to buy one, but very cheap, 25 rupee, 120 naira.

very nauseating taste, unless you are an indian.

it had many other bag dressings, which tricked me to buy it again and again.

Buttermilk isnt sweet, the name isn't like the product. I learnt that when I tried it.

i m not that particular with the food, so, i dont notice any, i just eat what comes by.

It's hard to go wrong with rice anywhere. Always a safer choice.

that is a "genre" of travel, like some hiking from johnesburg to cairo. but my energy will never allow me to do that . so i do small scale adventure. but i will not go to india anymore, it is way too adventurous even by its normal standard.

i complained the air condition too cold, and there was no remote control. an indian hotel guy came to my room, he used his CELLPHONE , with the app in it , to adjust the temperature.

very high-tech.

Re: 28 Days, 10000 Miles, Railway In India by igbesachick: 1:06am On Feb 13
the morning time in visakhapatnum, before started today's journey, there is an indian temple at the roadside, in front of the hotel . yesterday was in a rush, i forgot to take a notice of it. and in the early morning, the intoning prayers and the mesmeric bell tolling were epiphanic.

my ticket did not facilitate me with a direct train, i needed a transfer. i was totally confused. i even thought the girl who sat beside me and helpfully checked my ticket was joking with me.

this guy , coming from nowhere, voluntarily led me to transfer , he went the same way.
