and there was this giant black snake once, and also i stepped almost in a nest of sorta scorpion kinda creatures.
the coolest thing i saw there were giant prayig mantises and a hissing cockroach the size of a small hand.

at one morning we are getting ready to take the car and drive to new delhi which is 11 hours away.
so we are getting ready and **** and this gypsy walks down the street of my house, i lived in a typical indian quarters there, far away from any tourism or even foreigners.
so this guy sees a white dude all of a sudden and thinks kaching.
now one of my moronic friends thought to please me by letting the gypsy do a monkey dance.
they had funny hats and glasses and little jackets, but the show itself was pisspoor, all they did was run in circles and do backflips, while the gypsy was canting songs and hitting the groiund with his stick to a rhytm.
end of show and my friend lookks at me and says: time to pay him. (typical indian trick, they offer you, but you end up paying).
So i laughed and said im not paying for crap like that.
This entire talk ensued, and either me or my friend ended up giving some money, we gave it to the driver who handed it to the monkey, the gypsy saw the note and decided a white dude could spend much more on his awesome show, he gave a command and the monkey threw the money back and scratched the hand of the driver.
By that time i was getting pretty irritated by this gypsy and my friends started doing that third world routine where they shout and wave their hands but dont do anything really.
to this the gypsy gave more room to the leash and both monkeys showed their teeth (big fucking fangs btw) and came towards us.
luckily, everywhere you go in india there's houses being build or renovated so there were bricks aplenty.
I took one and wanted to throw it in the face of the monkey (his source of income) which settled things down pretty quickly.

btw India is shockingly racist, ive seen crap like:
airports, you wanna book a domestic flight?
indian nationals: 100% price.
non indians: 150%
its there on signs, black on white.
when you visit a touristic attraction you have guys spotting (we and also other westeners who had indian friends, let the indian friends buythe tickets foir local prices) and they would yell in 'gaurat!'gaurat is the N word for white people there.
you would end up paying double if not triple for your ticket.
I have no idea where this idea that india is a spiritual laidback comes from.
as a non indian you are a walking piggybank 24/7.
I think most white kids are rich or something and just paid whatever price they were charged, for me, I had 50 bucks on my bankaccount when i arrived there, i had to haggle and ****.
it was a dayjob on itself.
