coke part 2
I don't have much time or
energy to finish this. How do you tell people about India?
We went to the Taj Mahal. To be honest, I wasn't all that
psyched about seeing it. I mean, I thought it would be nice,
but, eh.. what's another building? It was absolutely stunning.
It didn't look real. It was some kind of painting. Too bad
Agra was so dirty that it was like looking out a dirty window
at everything. That night we sat outside and had a beer *slow
smile* AH beer. I'd been craving a drink since we arrived,
and that beer was damn good. I was so excited to find out
there was a bar at the hotel we were staying at that I did
a little dance for 10 minutes in our hotel room while I waited
for Penny to get ready. It was well worth the wait.
I have to go friends. I don't
want to, but I must. SO much more to tell. I'm feeling ill
today, and sometimes I crave just 15 minutes of time in my
apartment at home... just to recharge. There is no such thing
as recharging here. There is no such thing as calm and quiet..
I need to recharge, not only for myself, but for Penny too.
She didn't prepare herself mentally for this I think. She
tends to have a harder time with everything, and I try to
calm her while still maintaining my own Zen state. It's a
challenge. Perhaps I will tell you about when our driver disappeared
and left us all alone in the middle of nowhere for a while.
THAT was a Zen moment.
A hug for each of you. Miss
you. Miss home.
Another day, another McDonalds
travelogue is part of the subside
