Chapitre 1 : Comment s’agripper 10 nov. 2006 Me voilà à Delhi. Enfin.... Le vol s’est bien passé. 17.5heures de vol, avec 2 escales. J’avais vraiment hâte d’arriver. Interminable bordel. Je pose les pieds à l’aéroport fade et silencieux de Delhi. Il y plane une odeur de poussière humide, un peu comme au Biodôme de Montréal. C’est plutôt calme. Rien ne laisse envisager ce qui se passe dans les rues de la capitale indienne. Au moment où l’on sort de l’aéroport, on se fait accrocher par un chauffeur de taxi désinvolte… qui nous amène à un chauffeur de taxi moins désinvolte… qui nous amène à son taxi. Je lui explique que nous allons au Pallvi Palace, hôtel que j’ai réservé par internet avant notre départ. Il acquiesce. Il connait l’endroit. Ça lui prendra 20 minutes nous ... read more

Currently Watching Kal Ho Na Ho DVD 2004 By Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta Sooo.... We're here! Angel's internet hasn't been working but we hooked up the ol' laptop and voila! el interwebo! It's like 3:00am or something ridiculous at home, but it's a little after 1:00 in the afternoon on Monday here. We're about 9.5 hours ahead on this side of the world.

Went out shopping the other day with Angel and Dids and her mom. We ... read more

Namaste everyone. Well, here I am in Delhi, India. Let me tell you the road here from Kathmandu was none too smooth. I’m sending this once again through my ever-trustworthy friend Bob (who I’m sure has lots of time on his hands to do me these favours now that he’s a new daddy). I managed to check my e-mail messages this morning on the most ancient computer I think I’ve ever used (my old Commodore 64 excluded). I used a DOS-based web-browser to check my hotmail account which actually worked out surprisingly well although a bit time-consuming. Last I wrote I was in Pokhara, Nepal recovering from a trek in the Himalayan mountains. My recovery diet consisted of lots of beer and rum and several games of pool and darts. Although it proved difficult I managed ... read more
