Much better than we expected.
India is great. It is sooo much better than we expected. After 4 months of travelling it is nothing out of the ordinary to brush up against cows as you shop for new pants, or grab a bite to eat. We absolutely love how much better the animals get treated here than in most all of the rest of the world (better than some of the people). The condition of the animals is better most likely because of the Hindu/Buddhist influence. Like ...it is sooo refreshing to not look over and see a deplorable animal being beaten to pull it's load. All the working animals we see here are healthy and seemingly happy.
The food is sooo delicious, and CHEAP!. We have'nt had a meal yet that has been over $4.00 ...for both of us! And ya all know how I eat. We are very glad to be here and tomorow we are off for a 14 day tour of Rajasthan. We are planning to do a Camel Safari for Valentines that includes sleeping under the stars in the desert. Sorry if the other entry is a downer, but a few people have been waiting for the full version of what went wrong. I don't know whats wrong with us but when it rains ... It POURS. Nate
