My first few days in blessed Chennai

Drove out of the airport and was hit with the fine aroma of fermented piss.

Looks like I will be spending most mornings with my head stuck with needles. Acupuncture rules!!!

It’s a myth that you can no longer drive in India once you are used to driving in the US of A.

Showed middle finger to a cop. It felt so good.

Swore at an auto-rickshaw driver in Tamil. That felt even better. I am sure he was wondering why I was laughing at the end of tirade.

You can STILL drive on the opposite side of the road and it does not cause much concern.

1 veg thali, molaguthani soup, 1 non-veg special thali, mutton fry, lime juice... cost = $5.21 = Awesome!!!

My dad still uses his phantom break when he is in the car with me. Our roles are reversed now… “Let’s go to Landmark, buy some books and then eat some ice-cream”

My mother still thinks that I am a virgin.

I now live in fear of being abducted by mosquitoes...
