India: Family Advice


My brother went to India in the summer of 2004.

He stayed for four weeks,
and had some fairly crazy stories to tell upon returning...

One involving his friend,
 who woke up in the middle of the night 
to find a giant rat sitting on his chest.

A local shrugged it off
and explained it to be normal,
since "rats like to come eat the food 
 under your finger nails while you sleep."


.... !!!!! .....

Shocking.

So in doing this guest series,
I had to tap my trusted source and beg him to contribute.

Which he did,
because he's so nice like that.



Meet my (hilarious) big brother, Jonathan
and check out his answer to my big question:

What is the biggest surprise waiting for me in India?

"An all-out assault on your senses, 
and inevitably, 
your intestines as well..." 



"...I lost 25 pounds in 4 weeks."

he's a funny one!
*** 

... Ha! I wish! 25 pounds would make me a new woman...

I don't get to typically thank guest bloggers this personally,
but thanks for coming, Jonathan. Love you!
