"Slowly slowly, you learn to dough". I watched one of the owners of the only female run spice shop in Jodphur laughingly berate Bryan for about 2 and a half hours at our cooking class today. I helped in a peripheral manner (mostly supervising from the couch) while she look us through a yellow daal, vegetable byrani, and a couple types of chiapati (breads). I bought a small fortunes worth of spices, so I hope everyone back home is ready for some Indian food.

"Ok boss, now you massage everything all together, no one left out, everyone important. Yeeeeeeees" is forever going to be my favorite way I've ever been told to stir something, ps.

Had a solo trip up to the fort in jodhpur today, and I feel like I talked to half the city, it was great. I played cricket with a group of school kids, rode on the back of a motorcycle, became pen-pals with a spectacularly old man (he asked that I take a picture of him, print it out, then mail it to him, and promised to write back), shared chia in a families home while they showed me pictures of their son who's studying in Seattle and "is such a nice handsome boy, let us give you his email" and was lead most of the way back to my hotel by a giggling group of kids who took turns holding my hand. I am utterly charmed, India.
