Nasik

A journal entry from: July 08 - Jan 09

Took a brief pitstop in Nasik - a town that is home to many religious festivals. I had the longest dosa of my trip, and an enoyable wander around town.

The vibe in the streets has really changed towards me - I guess because of what has happened in Mumbai. So many people are now making a point of coming up to me and saying 'Welcome to India'. A couple of young lads wanted to lead me down a dark path to show me something - it was a shrine to their god. And on the train from Nasik to Mumbai a guy, after saying his mid-day prayers bought me a cup of tea and gave me a couple of bananas. I took his photo, unfortunately I didn't get his golden shoes in the shot.
