Welcome to India

Ive been in India two days. I feel the buzz. Stuff is happening. Traffic is worse. Its all going to get much much more horrible when Tata's brings out the Rs 1 lakh ($2500 USD) car next year. Any Indian who is currently on a two wheeler is going to buy the car. There really is no solution for Indian cities other than abandoning them and building new ones from the ground up. Madras airport actually does not look too bad. I mean it still smells of phenol and is gaudy and very third world looking but the chairs are comfortable, its clean, the Immigration and customs guys are very welcoming (unlike the US) and your baggage gets to the belt in about 20 minutes. Not too shabby. Jyothi, Kavi and Kreeps came to the airport to pick me up

I found madras airport the pits...Sahar bombay is competing with it for worst airport inthe world. It is cramped and dinghy..The bastards turn of the air con if you arrive after 10:00 pm.
