Well I was born and brought up in India, so even though I live in the midwest now - Indian weather is not so alien to me. Last time I was in India - I strolled in the sun, ate street side food, drank water wherever - pretty much everything I did growing up. I did not take any special precautions before traveling either.
So either I have the most amazing adaptive evolutionary biological system or the fact is you can take a desi out of India, but you cannot take India out of the desi.
If you are born and brought up in india.. you are good.. the problem is only for those who are born in US/UK etc.. and are accustomed to pure water and air.. while their immune system can take a long nap...
I dont take malaria shots while travelling to india.. i eat vada pav.. with ,my eyes closed... cant see what i could be eating..
Sun screen are you kidding.... you can use that if you dont want to look south indian... but not to prevent skin cancer.. or something.....yeah drink water since you can get dehydrated in god forskaen places in Rajasthan Delhi.. where heat is killing....stop showing off yuor NRI delicateness in front of poor friends and relative.. just have fun...
I always go to Chowpatty and have tried evertthing at sharmas... have tried roadside pani pure.. with eyes wide shut..drink water anywhere..I do use one thing from US though the hand sanitizers an carry a whole lot ot floss.. which is not easilly available in inda..Every indian is made up of iron and bacteria.. immune to everything...Which part of india you are from?
Chowpatty beach is amazing! Yet for some reason I prefer Juhu beach despite it being not as clean..it has a very festive mood to it I guess. I heard they've stopped horse rides there now though due to animal cruelty?
and not to forget the fun fair where the rides are probably the most dangerous rides ever, most of them lacking a decent seat belt lol.
I just love street food! They tend to taste a lot better than when sitting in a restaurant ordering food. It's fun telling the guy 'aur teekha bhaisaab' after gobbling down one paani puri after the other.
any mumbaikars hears of gypsy in shivaji park? It's quite a popular restaurant and you'll often spot directors and celebs eating there..their indo-chinese food is AMAZING! Gurukripa is another one of my favourites..I have never in my life tasted better gajjar ka halwa! <3
Qwertyji talking about bacteria and NRI's and our immune system, anyone else find that Indian milk is totally different to the milk over here (buffalo back home and cow over here) and i'm too used to the milk here so I can't eat the milk over there at all..it makes me feel sick.
