Crazy cow? - Wednesday, December 12, 2001
Hmm....what to write? You know, last night I was standing next
to the main road just outside the place I live, waiting for some
friends to pick me up.
I was just watching all the people and the mad traffic when I
suddenly noticed a cow walking across the road as calmly as if
it was walking across a peaceful meadow In reality 5 lines of
cars, trucks, buses and bikes where screaming past. I had actually
been watching the cow get half way across the wide road before
it hit me that I really didn't take any specific notice of the
cow. I mean if this had happened anywhere else I would definitely
reacted as soon as I saw the cow, but now it was just part of
the complete chaos. Its a bit weird how fast one gets used to
Well, the friends came and picked me up and we went back to their
flat. There was quite a few people there, so we had some drinks
and just talked for a while. Since Delhi is such a dodgy place
to get around in at night most people stayed over in the house.
We spendt a loong time trying to figure how how to fit everyone
with enough blankets. It is winter time here now and it is getting
quite cold at night. I have to wear a jumper.
Today some of us slept in for a bit, then eventually I got a
ride back to South Extension. There I had a shower, then went
with Jessies sister, Nikki and her boyfriend for a little drive/shopping
in the center.
I will probably leave for Madras on Sunday night. A 34 hour train
ride....ugh....that is really looong!!!
