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:

  • Ben and I are living it up at the Alila Diwa.. follow on Instagram!

Now your story,

I shared last week about the Sky TV guy having our security guys cut down some palm trees. By the way, they aren’t our personal security or something-they work for the complex but we pay them extra for odd jobs.

Ben had told me to save the palm trees for a little project. He loves those ;)

He wanted to build a fence so our dogs could play outside without us getting yelled at by our neighbor who hates dogs. So, machete back out again and the guys went to work. I Snapchatted that I was 1000% sure it wouldn’t work…

But I was 1000% wrong!! Omni slept outside in his new area, which goes all the way to the back of the house and is blocked on the other side and was a very happy camper. It’s a shame we can’t let our dogs run free, but after Huck’s death we only walk them on a leash. It’s unusual in Goa, where no one keeps a dog locked up, but it’s become the norm for us.

The only thing missing is a gate, but the top tree on the right slides over so you can step across. There is wire in between the tress which you can’t see so that the dogs can’t slip through and it’s high enough they can’t jump it. Success! Ben is worth keeping around haha!

This is India!
