Could I say this is my second time in India? :) Maybe not. We left here four weeks ago, even our first plan was to stay here for 4 weeks. Why did we change the plan? ... How did India treat us last time?
I was thinking about the answer. We're panic at first but we're more relax now. Why?
I remember the first time we stepped in Calcutta, India. It was our first city of our first trip together. On that day, Ale and I don't know each other more than someone who chatted and planned about this trip to go together for two months. We're only travelled together just only on the computer before September 29, 2007. Then we stepped to the country we never been and we chose the cities, Calcutta and Varanasi, where people said "please keep them for the last".
We became a person who used to hear the horn, we can smile when the taxi asked more money because of their cheating meters, we used to walked among crowded places without losting concentration, we're ok to see a lot of people came to us quickly and said "picture picture" or "money money" ...... and we smiled ***
Maybe India didn't make us panic but we're panic by ourselves. Maybe Nepal didn't help us be more calm but we understood our lifestyles more. To travel with someone you've never known is not easy even you are an easy-going person.
But lucky we passed.
This trip was the first longest trip (45 days) that i've made since I graduated. (it took about 15 years to make it? wow!) Last year I quit the job to travel and great that i've had a good start. India has a good part (as I mention in my India blog) and there has more parts that i've never been. This trip was just my first trip, and India is big so just a few cities can't explain how india is, I have to see more :)
Thank you for everyone I've met, thank you for every places in India and Nepal. And many thanks to my companion, Ale (www.travbuddy.com/aleksflower).
