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:

  • I’m wandering about the ruins of Hampi (a place I’ve written about before) with goMowgli then by the end of this weekend I’ll be on the beaches of Gokarna!
  • Happy Halloween! Wish I could dress up, I loved this holiday a lot in the U.S.

Now your story (but it’s a picture this week),

I shared this on Instagram before (are you following me on there? You should be!)

I passed this about 20 times before I realized “wait, this isn’t normal in the U.S. I should totally take a picture for me blog!” So I got out and did while everyone on the road looked at me like I was crazy. The India car wash that makes monsoon more fun! This was near the main Goa Highway to Panjim and there’s always a few buses around and even some cars and bikes.
