Back in Delhi again - Wednesday, March 13, 2002
Im back in Delhi again! I came yesterday afternoon after 36
hours on the train from Goa. The train trip was a fun though.
For once I was not alone, but travelling with Andreas, also from
Germany (the Germans must travel a lot, I always seem to meet
them?!) I met Andreas after a few days in Arambol and after that
I did not even have time to update my travel diary. We had a fantastic
time there :)
We explored some great places and even made a small bonfire one
evening on which we tried to make home baked bread! It was not
extremely successful, but still very fun!
I also had a bad experience with dogs in Arambol. One night when
I came back to my room 3 dogs surrounded me. Of course I panicked
a little and tried to move away. Then I felt one dog bite into
my leg. Luckily it was not too hard, it just scratched the skin,
but it made some nasty blue marks and I was very sore. The owner
of the guesthouse told me to take a tetanus shot in case of rabies,
which I did, but apparently the dog did not have rabies so I should
be fine. Not a very nice experience though.
Anyway, I don't think I will write much more the coming days.
Im going back to London in a week and then to Norway after a few
more days. Im both sad and happy about going home now. But the
trip has been a really good experience, both good and bad. I think
India is the most paradoxical country to travel in. Some people
say you either end up hating or loving it, but I think I actually
both hate and love it at the same time!
Well I guess this is it then, I haven't been very good at updating
the diary the last month, but some experiences are not always
possible to write about and some things are too personal, but
I hope it has been interesting enough for those who cared to read
it. Even though it might sound a bit negative at times. Namaste!
