This turned out to be a fantastic decision! After giving Pawan his tip alittle early, he was happy, i was happy, we went to his house and i met his family. Most of whom don't speak english, in fact, Pawan only speaks english.
But his Niece, Briyanya, and nephews, Varun and Shivam, know a few words and i proceeded to teach them more. This was a traditional family in a traditional Indian home. No bathroom, no windows, no nothing, no problem. I couldn't be happier to stay,
I gotten so far outside my comfort zone this makes no difference. As the sun went down, the Diwali celebrations began. people set off fireworks and the kids were having a blast. Those kids loved me, Pawan said "they're celebrating Diwali and celebrating you."
After some fireworks and was a short blessing, more fireworks and then a vegetarian meal, it was delicious! Now i'm off to bed, just a small cot in a little room.
