Hello everyone (or my 1 faithful reader?)
So I had the mandatory food poisoning already, not the worst type luckily, but still I took 1 week to recover. Welcome to India… And last week was really difficult, as I started to miss home so much. You know, I try to present the good sides of India but anyone who truly knows me, know that I’m very opinionated and straight-forward and I usually have something to say about everything. So I’m not going to just write how great and lovely India is and all that s***. Last week I was annoyed about everything, the people, the noise, the cultural habits and manners ugh! And the friggin’ street dogs outside who bark, howl and literally sounds like they’re killing each other every night like it’s the goddamned Planet of the Dogs remake out there!!! One day I went for a walk outside, I lasted 15 minutes and developed a cough because it’s so polluted, I feel like I’m breathing in the “air” in a burning house, like it’s literally smoke! :((((((. Anyways, those are probably the most annoying things here right now, and also some of the indian women’s incredibly high-pitched voices… I am still waiting for that still moment, when it’s completely quiet. Maybe next year.
But today I looked at the calendar and realized, holy fuck, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I was in complete oblivion as I thought it’s on Friday. I don’t have a gift for my boyfriend, well neither has he for me, I’m pretty sure. We don’t have any plans arghh. My Christmas cards, which I sent THREE weeks ago, haven’t reached my family, wtf? And I’m so sick of chapatti I can’t even look at it right now… Like how can they eat chapatti three times a day?! I made rice porridge (traditional Christmas food in Finland) and I’m eating it for the last three days. And seriously I am so cold inside the house, like freezing. It’s colder inside than outside! Ok, I know people are sleeping on the streets outside, but I am used to warm houses with heating.
I am now officially the Grinch.
