The abode.

I promised a video tour of my flat, and here it is. It isn't much, but it's home.



I've learned to expect frequent cuts to utilities. A few days ago, I finally was able to shower after almost two days of no water, but then the electricity cut off while I was showering. We haven't had gas either, so I haven't been able to cook anything except vegetables steamed in a rice cooker. The funny thing is how little I care about these inconveniences. It's not hard to overlook small nuisances when the rest of the country has so much to offer you.

I'm leaving tonight with a dozen of my new friends for a 3-day trip by bus to the foothills of the Himalayas tonight, in a town called Shimla.

It's kind of amazing that you're half the world away, and I can hear your voice and know what your apartment looks like.

Ditto above, your place looks nice. Keep the updates coming!
