So I now know how much it costs to pay the rikshaw drivers to get to where I want to go. It kind of annoys the ones who think they can make extra off of the American. I costs Rs. 30 to get from my apartment to the office and it costs Rs. 80 to get from my apartment to the Forum Mall. The Forum mall is a mall like I am used to in the US, but it is also the heart of a shopping district with lots of shops and places to eat. I like to go there because I can always find something to eat!

I get five channels of watchable TV here in india at my service apartment, 2 movie channels (mostly stuff from the eighties and nineties), the WB, Discovery, and NatGeo. There are, of course, 3 or 4 cricket channels.

Those two extra knobs in the bathroom actually control the water to all of the bathroom. Hmmm, that might explain why I didn't have cold water until last week when I made sure that they were both on. Who would just turn off the cold water?

So they like chicken here. Its a staple of the non veg diet. However, its not the chicken you get when you go to chick-fil-a. Its not nice full chicken breast, this is B grade stuff. Oh well, at least I can get a pretty good pepperoni pizza from Dominos. Delivery at that!

Hey buddy! Your country misses you too. Glad you're figuring things out, it sounds tough out there. What's your address these days?
