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 your story,

While traveling through Karnataka, somewhere near Dandeli, my cab driver offered to eat lunch at his Aunt’s place who lived on the way to my homestay. I was excited to meet his family and try local food.

His family of course was amazing and the food was super yum. I took a few photos there but my favorites were this one of his sassy cousin – model alert! …

… and this one, of I KID YOU NOT, a live chicken in a cupboard in the living room.

Sorry it’s such shit quality, but I didn’t want them to notice I took a photo, so I snapped it quick on my phone. It wasn’t trapped. If you look you’ll see the glass is in the middle only. The chicken got down a couple times and walked around then jumped back up to his “room” for a nap.

I was told they will definitely eat it later!

This is India!
