Healing Of India


Well, another day in paradise. The experiences here have
been both plentiful and enjoyable on the whole. Duncan has been a great teacher
and has given me the confidence to go out alone, cope with haggling and bartering
and SO much more. I have tried a huge variety of different foods and we have
visited many weird and wonderful places too. The beaches here are so lovely
although I’m aware that there is so much more to come. Listening to the Indian language

probably from 1960/70. They really are like those you see on Indian films. They

that will be!!! I’ll be reporting back later, that is assuming I don’t die
