I’m really happy to be taking Hindi at the U now that I’m home, but sitting in night class for 2 1/2 hours 2x a week talking about India makes me well, miss India… a lot.
I miss.. bucket showers, and dal bati, my eternally dirty feet, sharing bidis with cab drivers, stargazing from the roof in devgarh, fresh nimbu and guava and mango and kela. I miss my american friends who are still there, i miss khana bhai and 10 chapati narayan bia.
I’m still having a hard time shaking the post USA return blues. My visa is good until July… and if I had the cash I’d be back in a heartbeat.
