Last Day, Himalayas


I'm continuing to meet fascinating people on the trip. A French chef staying at my guest house recently sold off everything and is traveling with his wife and 7 year old for four years. His first trip ever was a 3,000km motorcycle ride from France to Norway when he was 16 years old. It's wonderful to sit back and just listen to the smokers wax poetic about their experiences and everything 'shanti shanti'. They find me to be a quiet and peaceful person (not quiet and creepy like they do in the States, ha!). In fact, that's been one of the encouraging things about meeting people on this journey... often, people have commented that they've found me to be a generally good human with a positive energy or aura. I had a lot of trouble appreciating that when I was back home.

Dear Mom, Thank you for mailing the box back. It has been received and my refund is being processed.


Dear Valentina, When you return to Paris from Africa, expect a funny looking package sent from Delhi, India. I hope the color pleases you.


I think I jumped back into normal food to quickly yesterday. Potaotes, eggs, and buttered toast... bad call. So far toast, porridge, and mint tea seems to be working out. Wish me luck on the bumpy 12 hour bus ride tonight.

My long puffy hair makes me look skinnier in photos. I need a buzz cut desperately. I was thinking about a 20 Rupee hair cut in India but the other day, I watched a bunch of people crowding around this guy from Yemen at my guest house. They were checking out the lice eggs in his hair. Mmm, let's make an omelet. Pin, hope you have a good place for me to get a trim- number 2 on the sides, chop the top.

I'm excited for Japan, it's going to be sooo different! India is an incredible place but you need to take your time here. Have a friend with you. There is no way to do it at the pace of my European trip.

    hey man, i think it's actually easier to get rid of lice with a shaved head... they have less places to hide. hope you're doing well.

    Today is the 40th birthday of the Big Mac. I think you should go find one and celebrate.

    You know, beef is actually banned in New Delhi. At McDonald's here, you'll find the Chicken Majaraja Mac instead of a Big Mac. Other weird items include Veg. Surprise, Aloo Tikka, Pizza pockets, and Paneer. It definitely doesn't smell like an American McDonalds... you know beef and hormones.

    I'm not ready to shave my head, D.
