This Country Just Can’t Deal with Reality Any More
As Election Day 2010 approaches, the consequences of the nation’s three-decade-old decoupling from reality are becoming painfully obvious.

  1. I went to Kanpur India in February with SWARM 🙂 (orbswarm.com)

    Since there’s no time for shots, DEFINITELY go to REI and get bug repellent for your clothing. I am looking at my bottle right now “Sawyer Clothing Insect Repellent, 12 ounce size.” You spray it on your clothes and let it dry (it stinks awful until it’s dry, then you can’t smell it at all 🙂 Read the instructions on the stuff at REI.

    And DEFINITELY get 3M Ultrathon insect repellent. It sits right next to the clothing repellent.

    One of my travel mates to India didn’t use the bug spray or anti-malarials and the bugs LOVED him. On the first day in the hotel, I walked in and he was standing at the wall. He pointed to a red spot on the wall and said, “See that? That’s my blood. Fucking mosquitoes.”

  2. Hi Kal,
    Where will you be in India?
    Getting there is the big expense. The exchange rate is way to your advantage, probably at least 40 rupies to the dollar. I suggest taking more than four days, spending some time & checking it out. You can grab a Lonely Planet guide & probably some malaria pills. I recommend checking out the Hindu temples. They have great sculpture, and the way they worship with fire, flowers, pigments notches up the level of beauty so much that it goes way beyond most art & you can feel it in your guts. Call me if you want to talk about it. 510.524.2713 Also, Ganesh is the God of wisdom & new beginnings. In the Temples a real elephant will be there as his manifestation. Present him with a bunch of bananas & he will thump you on the head with his trunk in blessing. I went to Madurai in the south. I love Paris, but India was twenty times more engaging. This culture is too bland. I didn’t want to come back. Have fun!!!! Susan

  3. definitely don’t get dengue fever…it’s like Hep C, without the hipster factor
