On our first full day in Ooty, Nachi took us to a local street vendor for a breakfast consisting of a masala dosa, fried idlis and chai. The masala dosa was so delicious that I had a very hard time restraining myself from completely pigging out, which would not have ended well since the night before I had my first rather painful experience with dysentery! I won’t get into the details because trust me, you don’t want them.

Thoughts about Indian Fashion
When I first arrived in Bangalore, I decided that in an effort to fit in with the locals I would introduce some colour into my drab travel wardrobe. I bought a beautiful fuchsia silk scarf to accent my boring beige, black and white travel pieces. I desperately wanted to purchase reams of colourful fabrics and dress myself in silk salwaars and sarees, but I was unsure of how locals would feel about a westerner in their traditional Indian clothing. So I embraced this colourful culture by imitating certain aspects of their style of dress.
