What else


- Waiting end of August to be back to France and see my family...

- 'Summer' is almost over here .... ;(

- It is migraines' week.... ;(
.

I reached the Indian land :P


Phew, it s 2 in the afternoon and I am in my hotel room with the fan, i m trying to avoid the A/C to get used to the burning hot weather outside :)
As i thought I haven t slept much because I can t sleep in the plane :( The trip was pretty ok, i reached Hyd at 4.30 in the morning. Before we landed I was looking at my monitor which was displaying the altitude and the temperature, I almost got a stroke when i saw at 2900 meters it was hotter than in Ireland at the moment.... 13 degrees, and when i saw the 28 degrees displayed on the screen at 4.30AM !!!! I was already thinking how would it be like now! I went out of the airport, it was damn crowded, lots of people were waiting for friends and family, and me the white @ss tourist, I did not even walk 10 meters that 10 guys jump on me to see if i was looking for a taxi!
The trip to reach the hotel with my taxi was pretty hectic, even though the road was not crowded, I will never ever ever did i say never... drive in India, people are insane.:P First of all, i had the feeling that seat belt is only for losers or tourists like me. I thought I would die at least 8 times, the indicator has no use, the horn has definitively a better effect! Taxi as autos or bikes are driving like crazy, no exceptions!
I also saw lots of dogs hanging around, with some people living on the side of the 'expressway' in a home made with sheet metals who were already cooking some spicy stuff cause i could smell it from the car!
I also saw... men holding each other hands!!!! Even a guy was putting is hand in the back pocket of the other guy's jeans. As far as I know, and for what i read love affair between same sex are not so legal in India so I was pretty surprised to see some manly men holding each other hands!!!! My friends told me it s a 'brotherhood' thing here. Well as a piece of advice my friends, if u re coming in Europe avoid the touchy 'brotherhood' here or u might get some surprise.
Now my friends came to visit today, Mazhar and his wife and son came, poor son who almost cried when he saw me for the first time, I hope he did not sick I was sick my pale white face :)


Then Nik and Mazhar who came back went on a driving trip to see the Hyd Silicon Valley with all the info company :) Then we went to the Shilparamam park where they are selling handicrafts. It was pretty cool and I got my first mehandi as u can see on the pic, it went orange and now it s brownish pretty cool!


Then we went back to the hotel, oh first i had to experience the 'crossing the road' omg, uncontrolled traffic like that + people crossing street like us ... in France, hundred of people who d died each day!!!!
Anyway, back at the hotel where got food for 3 for 165 rupees!!!! seriously!!!! do u know what u can get for 165 rupees in Ireland? 2 gums probably ok let says 2.5 gums but that s it! :)
The weather was pretty neat actually with a small breeze which allowed us to stay on my balcony while drinking and listening to music :)


Today I m at the office, it s pretty hot outside! Tomorrow and wed i ll be visiting Hyd :)
Hope u have a great time... stay tuned!

Well that s it for now, i m happy to be here... keep in touch! Cheers
Ps: if u wanna see more pics check out there HYD
