Bombay: in March

March 14, 2011

In India, I have been just letting fate have its way with me, as they say, and jumping at whatever comes my way. But if you told me a few months ago that I would be waiting tables and helping run a restaurant, I probably would have laughed. Combine working 12pm-12am with partying from 12am-5am, and you have pretty much summed up the past few weeks here in Bombay. Sunny and I, with the help of all of our friends, got the new Bandra branch of Lebanese Point opened up on the 5th of this month. What started with hours of cleaning and making sure things were happening before the opening has now turned into hours of waiting tables and handing out fliers. I am not sure how Sunny does it, but I have been running almost exclusively staff food, “B-Natural Mixed Fruit Juice,” and Sonali’s cupcakes for the past few weeks. And somehow (with the exception of the night we had street food) I have been going strong.

Tomorrow I am off to Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan for a few weeks where I will hopefully not get kidnapped, visit three of Buddhism’s most famous pilgrimage sites, and see the one and only Taj Mahal.
