The country that will change you

Standard

Here is a good article from Canberra writer, Ben Stubbs that shows how travellers to India will always have a good story to tell when they get home.

For us who live here there is a story in each new  day sometimes without even venturing out our front door.

Take last week for example: as the weather temperature drops and the sodden humidity eases I decide to leave the back door of the kitchen open.

I hear my maid scream!

Rushing into the kitchen she tells me  she saw a large monkey with one hand on the handle of the chest freezer and the other holding up a frozen fish.

An Indian monkey.

He knows how to open freezer doors.

He doesn’t eat fish.

Welcome to India.
