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.

</div>

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...
<div>


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? Ouch 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. Tongue

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. Ouch
LOLLOL.. u know shivaji park!!???? Man.. u might turn out to my neighbor..or something..LOL
 
In india they do sell cows milk... it has a brand name i forgot....so dont worry eat and drink anything.. again if you are born in india or lived for few years since birth its typically ok.. I know of several freinds who got their kids here as 3-4 year old and are visiting inida without any kind of vaccine mania or anything... Now tell me what else you know in Shivaji park....i know Gypsy... I love the Sardar pav bhaji ,, nothing like it

I can't eat out when I go there during summers.  I enjoy the food during winters though.  But I am ALWAYS careful about the water. 
Was that directed at me?

Confused

Give me one good reason why it should be directed at you?


Because my post is directly above yours and you didn't quote anyone, and I'm going to India during the summers.
 
Anyways, my apologies if I offended you in any way.

If you are born in india or have born and lived there for few years you dont need to go overboard with precautions....mardon ki nishani hai woh....LOL  I didnt bother about water either... in mumbai.. may i was lucky.. but i am more practical most of the time...like i said earlier.. deo, hand sanitizer and some floss is all you need....

I went there for a summer when i was like 10...we went for a wedding so the festivities were really really fun and i made tons of friends! BUT it was so exausting and so dang hot! I loved going shopping but walking around was so tiring. For like half of the trip it was so boring! When the wedding was over we went back to my moms hoise an me and my brother were bored to death. Mainly because my cousins were way older than us and went to school so we were left with my grandparents, mom, and my mama and mami-ji. I think i spent most of that time in the one room thar has an AC LOL



Overall i think it was an amazing experience and fum when there was actually something to do or if we went somewhere or if people my age came over :)

i wanted to go again with my mom last winter but couldnt cause of school...it was my cousins wedding and i was so excited! :(.



Oh yeah! And before we went to india we had to get malaria shots and when we were there i had to drink bottled water. I drank regular tap water first but i got sick and threw up so i had to drink bottled water after that.


Since i was a kid i whined a lot about the flies, mosquitos, and the hot weather. I remember thar after a while i started to wear jeans so the flies wouldnt be on me LOL

i think if i was to go again, i would have much more fun :)
Buy lots of suits ( the kind i like for once! My mom didnt bring the types of suits i wanted) and spend more time sight-seeing than being stuck in the house.


Also i want to go in the winter next time...the summers there are getting unbearably hot. I'd go around jan-feb since it gets really dangerously foggy in december.
