Mom gave me gifts to relay to indians. Guess what I forgot I had and subsequently got as a gift from a very nice swedish girl in the train from Bern to Zurich.. Holding it in my hand.
Meanwhile, my neck and upper body is covered with what I got myself with coupons from my really nice coworkers. Thanks!
Friendly security men at every place that has a door. Plus, metal detectors, hands on body search and opened bags for most average shops. Additionally, machine guns at every public transport station or market entrance.
(Food court in Istanbul during my layover.)
While India has some the best spices of any cuisine I know, the ice cream Falooda was easily the best food I've had here. It is a fancy mix of texture and flavor:
- Crunchy nuts
- Coconut or vanilla ice cream
- Delicious strawberry milk shake
- Small chewy dark berries
- Thin noodles for a surprising texture
- Milk rice to reset your taste buds
- Red pudding
