In India’s Sunny Clime

Visible Origami – Dec 16, 2012

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Finally I am here. Getting my Internet sorted has been problematic. What a trip! I got to my train with minutes to spare and found that they forgot to put my car on. The conductor said to sit in one place. The guy sitting there said no. So the conductor told me to sit with this young lady who turned out to be a Palestinian doctor living in Jordan. Her name is Ala. You can just imagine our conversation.
I needed no return ticket for India. I kept setting off the radar at security because of the pin in my leg from a Kung Fu accident. At Chennai they thought I had a wooden leg and wanted me to unscrew it. The Indians are very amusing. When I signed in for the long first leg of my flight, well after most others, I didn’t even think of asking for a bulkhead seat. The lady at check in said, “You are very tall, would you like a bulkhead seat”? They gave me the best seat on the plane. Things happened on that flight that were so real and supernatural, I can’t even talk about them. This was one of the strangest events in my life, if that tells you anything.
The reader, Drew, who bought me my flight and ten day stay at this phenomenal resort cannot make it. Hmmm (grin). I can see Arunachala from my window. The food here is simply amazing and so are the people. I am experiencing massive culture shock and staying close to here and under the radar for the moment. I have found a great place to stay after here and if you have never been here and don’t have much money, this is the place to be. This is another planet. This is not Earth as I have ever seen it. I am afraid I will lose this posting at any moment so I will go now. I will figure all of this out in time. Bear with me.
End Transmission…….
