In a perfect world I would take a few months off, see the world, but the realistic side of life always gets in the way.

But as a "recon mission" a week was perfect and whatever unfinished business there was is being continued thanks to the wonders of the Internet.

Will I go back again? Oh yes. Will I continue to tell tall tales of my "brothers" in Jaipur and my adventures in India? Of course, it opened new doors, new friends, career opportunities... My colleagues helped inspire me to go in the first place, contributed in their own special ways to make it happen.

One day they'll "send" me back again to Rajasthan which is the stuff of their fantasies

And tall tales... (Link to my blog, "A lost sheep in Delhi")

Nice blog, keep it up.

Almost felt like a school teacher typing the above.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Thank you. The adventures of the lost sheep would continue soon.

Chennai is the next destination and the hometown of some of my favourite colleagues, whom I helped in small ways to encourage them to rise up on their own and find a better place of employment.

When they saw I was trying not to end up like Queen Padmavati they asked me to apply for a job, no details given, no opening needed just walk in to a totally "desi" company where the hiring manager frankly told me he was staying up late and possibly causing dissatisfaction in the family....

I assured him no, please, it won't happen.
I went to the next interview in Indian dress and told my story. I didn't even tie my hair, I was already being called Kali in Delhi, might as well look the part, no?

I just signed the employment contract last week... I think I'm the only non Indian in the entire company so let's see how it goes. If it works out, this is my gateway to Chennai for my birthday in October 😂

This was my last wish made at Fatehpur Sikri. While some say it's a manufactured made up ritual, that place is dear to me.

I didn't recognize my shoes after spending an hour to myself in a hidden room at Jodhabai's palace. And I still have problems with balance and fell over in front of friends for no reason like I'm a different person.

Or so the story is told, to my colleagues husband's and kids 😂
They seem to be writing the story of a past life for me, it would be duty to go and find them in Chennai 😂

We have not seen Drews60 (the OP) since September 2017. I loved the warmth and enthusiasm of his reports and sincerely hope he is well.
