I am feeling much calmer now. Thought I was on the verge of a panic attack from all the hassle today. The sweat. The inability to find the vipassana meditation lecture. The desire of everyone and I mean everyone to take me to their special sponsor. The inability to get a cab to use the meter or take me cross town. The fact that streets often simply don’t have names and pointing them out on the map to cab or tuk tuk drivers is met with blank stares. The choking fumes. The sweat again. And did I mention the sweat?
Now, with the help of a magic pill, I feel unburdened. I was thinking of switching careers after all this is over and pharmacology is looking good right now.
I have also managed to upload a ton more pics, which I will be linking to shortly. This is a very odd culture indeed, but an interesting one.
