Welcome back to This is India! I always have funny/weird stories about India to share with friends or family when I talk to them. This is just meant to be an honest portrayal about my life in India through short anecdotes. I also share here what I’ve been up to online outside Hippie in Heels.

What I was up to other than here:

Now for your story…

Another airport story coming at you from Mumbai! What can I say, weird shit is always happening at the airports here.

This one is short and sweet.

Security was on high alert at the Mumbai domestic airport for some reason. Usually I take through all kinds of things that should be examined and they aren’t, but this time they examined my camera, played around with my tablet, asked lots of questions about my external hard drive, and per usual during examination asked why I had a piercing in my belly button. They took Ben’s lighter when they found it (which is the protocol).

We head up to the food court and Ben goes off to the restroom. I’m typing away on my computer and smell smoke. I look behind me and there’s a passenger just smoking a cigarette, in an airport, security watching on. No big deal- after all that security and searching. Everyone loves smoking in India, but this was new.

This is India!
