    glad to see you made it to LP – looks pretty much like i remember it, but sounds a bit more touristy, and it’s only been 3 years since my visit. I was going to recommend the place i stayed in LP, but checked the website to find that the prices had doubled! oh well. where to next?

    some recommended reading for india (plenty of english language bookstores, so you should be able to find at least one or two of these books if you’re interested):

    “India: A Million Mutinies Now” by V.S. Naipaul (a great introduction to India – a joy to read)

    “Midnight’s Children” by Salman Rushdie (fictitious novel about children born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the precise moment of India’s independence)

    “The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy (a novel set in Kerala in the south of India)

    “India: A History” by John Keay (a “compelling epic portrait of one of the world’s oldest and most richly diverse civilizations.” rather dry and historical, but very interesting if you have the stamina for such a tome)

    Well I’m sure it beats the watering holes along Santa Monica Blvd! Yeah, definitely pick up the Roy book…you’ll really never want to work again once you get through it.
