First Solo Rickshaw Ride


Now I have been in Ahmedabad India for just about a year. But could never find the nerve to go out on my own.

Well today I took my first solo rickshaw ride. Arif has been coming and getting us. So I know him and he knows where I live. So I don't have to worry about getting home. He doesn't speak alot of English, but we can communicate. My first ride was full of emotion. 1) Being so far away from home. 2) Nobody knowing exactly where I am. 3) Proud of myself for being excited and not scared to death.

I went and had a facial at Dolly's. I am going to miss her. Her fingers feel like 10 little angels. She is so gentle and you get a complete 1 hour facial for 250 rupees. Yes $6.25 USD. You just can't walk out with paying her so little.

The when I came out of Dolly's Arif was waiting on me. He took me accross the street to Sun Photo so that I could get the pictures on a CD so I can upload them and you can see my rickshaw driver.

Why does it look like there is a woman in the cab thing with you?

Counting the days!
