Haridwar and Rishikesh

Glad to have come, glad to leave!

sunny 34 °C

Written on June 30...

I only have 10 mins of Internet so I'll make this quick:
Well, I just went to Rishikesh today, trip postponed by 1 day since I got massive food poisoning 2 nights ago and slept all day yesterday. I knew I shouldn't have bought those peanuts from the street vendor... or eaten those 4 mangos (they were small) before going to bed!! hehehe, I'm ok now.
I'm leaving for Agra (Taj Mahal) on an overnight bus in aprox 1 hour, and just came back from a day trip in Rishikesh, the "World capital of Yoga". It was ok, but I'm glad I chose to stay in Haridwar instead of Rishikesh, which is too... tourist oriented, with it's lots of beggars, white people and western food. The town itself is broken into 3 sectors, which I visited, and nothing very special to report. Lots of flies flying around(less than Haridwar, but that's sooo easy to beat).
Overall looking forward to the end of this trip. A bit (a lot) tired of living in my back pack. I just enquired with British Airways if I could possibly change my itineary to only stay in London a few days 9save some massive $$ by skipping Europe-I can always go back), then off to Van for aprox 1 month, then to Mtl on Aug 21, just in time for the "welcome meeting" at U of Montreal - where I'll be doing a certificate in law (transferable to the 3 yrs Bachelor) (yay!)
SO anyway we'll see.
Running out of time,
More from Agra!
P.S. Just got my first "getting grabbed in the bus" today, from the guy who gives the tickets of all people!! He started by tapping on my knee, which I allowed for about 5 sec, then I pushed his hand off and said no. It was at the end of the ride, so I got up to leave, then he patted the back of my leg! I was like NO! The he put his lips to get a kiss!!!??!?! I was like ! NO WAY! back off! hehehe
