Puterea unuia singur

Prietena mea Sonia e in India de aproape trei luni. Acum ceva vreme mi-a trimis un email, si eu am dorit mult sa-l impartasesc cu voi. Ea mi-a dat voie. Si-i multumesc 🙂 “Naveta cu autobuzul si ochelarii de soare. Biroul in care lucrez se afla la 10+ km de unde locuiesc in prezent. Locuiesc…

Din India, la urne?

Sunt in India pentru cateva luni, a treia oara pe subcontinent, dar prima data cand nu sunt aici ca turist. Drept urmare am de facut chestii administrative, cum ar fi sa-mi gasesc cazare, cumpar cartela de telefon si abonament de internet, si alte cele trebuincioase oricarui cetatean. Nici nu am timp sa ma dezmeticesc pana…

INDIA – Thoughts upon leaving Incredible India

34 days. Open mind and heart. Minimal planning. Faith. Amazement. Hating India is probably the easiest thing you can do in this world. There are 1001 reasons to do so, from the crowds, smells, loudness, uncleanness, harassment, lack of facilities, poor services, constant staring, unsafety, lack of toilet paper, beggars, horny fellas… etc… etc… etc….

INDIA – Day by Day (22 -34)

Day 22: The journey was supposed to take one day.Three days and many unexpected events later (roads under construction, strong winds, heavy rain and HAIL, plus other things not to be mentioned here), we finally made it to the Holy land – the Golden Temple! And that’s when my jaw dropped… 🙂 Day 23: Enough…

INDIA – Day by Day (11-20)

Day 11: If there’s one thing I can recommend about India it is this: come here as a GUEST, not as a tourist. These people’s hospitality is remarkable, and if you know only one person when you come, there’s no need to worry, as there’ll always be a brother or a friends or a neighbor’s…

INDIA – Day by Day (1-10)

Day 0: Incredible we actually made it!! Heavy rain in Singapore and no taxi for 45 minutes. We made it to the airport 40 minute before take-off… and we actually got on the plane. First thought upon landing in Mumbai – ‘Hmmm… it’s exactly as I’ve imagined!”. First restaurant we ate in had a ‘Traditionally…

SINGAPORE – Legea… e lege!

  “SINGAPORE (Reuters) – A Singapore court on Wednesday extended a jail term for a Swiss man by two months to seven and maintained an earlier ruling that he receives three strokes of the cane for trespassing and spray-painting graffiti on a train. The harsher sentence, which reinforced the city-state’s low tolerance for even minor…

SINGAPORE – Sri Lankan Wedding

Si uite ca din nou m-am nimerit la o nunta, a 5a pe anul asta, dar prima traditionala Sri Lankan. Spectacol!:)     Nunta s-a tinut in Sentosa, insula minune a Singaporelui, artificiala ea ce-i drept, si foarte turistica (cu siguranta nu locul meu preferat de petrecere a timpului liber), dar daca omul acolo a…

VIETNAM – Halong Bay, in South China Sea

In ultimele 2 zile am fost toti 10 (deveniti pana la urma 12) intr-o croaziera in Halong Bay, in South China Sea, zona bine cunoscuta pentru frumusetea izbitoare a locurilor. Sunt practic peste 2000 de insulite/stanci, din care cateva sunt destul de mari incat sa fie locuite. Singurul mod de a vedea locul e cu…
