Um yea, that was Enlightening……I left Mumbai last week sometime on a train to Pune. I have already been to Pune and disliked it but i was going back for another reason…….. you know….. Anyway Me and Corinna have got this flat which is appantly in one of the most sought after suburbs in India. Its absaloutl massive and weve got it rent free for as long as we want. we have our own gardner, security Gaurd and cleaner… for free! weve been cooking our own food which is amazing after four months of eating in restaraunts. Just down the road is the Osho International Meditation resort which is another reason for being here. Theres one in euroope that is about 900 pounds a week but this one is like 6 pounds a day so its defintely worth doing. lots of famous people from all over the world come here.Check it out on google its a pretty amazing place. We all have to wear Maroon robes during the day and white ones during the night and theres loads to do. theres a swimming pool and tennis courts, Gymn, fitness centre etc and loads of different meditations on all day. Ive been doing all the meditiations quite intensely for the past week and have been a right mess. It brought up loads of Sadness and Anger but ultimately Joy and I can honestly say that i am a different person now. defintely a hightlight and i reccomend it to eveyone. Leaving in a few days for Varansi (32 hours, Ahhh!)               I thought i had more to say but it seems i don’t…….

p>Goa Anjuna beach.Arrived in goa with some dude from switzerland, he was a nice enough guy but we were trying to find a hotel and he couldn’t keep hi face out of the guide book which is just stupid so i walked of and found my own hotel.Went for a walk and just thought this is amazing! so many bars and restaurants all the way down the beach. Went for a beer and met charles a guy from belguim whos been here since 1977. He just wanted money of me because a polive man took all his 3 years ago.Then i met kay. i japenese girl from brixton who so cool and introduced me to loads of english peopl.The next day i was lying on deck chair, bed thing and i here this little voice next me saying “do you want some melon”
I looked over and thought…fuck yea i want some melon.
So that was that. that was my birthday present. a beautiful swedish girl. we goty on so well and spent the next 4 days together.
Then she went home on monday so i was feeling sorry for my self in the bar when i start talking to two absolutely stunning austrailian girls. They were too beautiful for me but we spent the night drinking and partying away. awsome.Then last night i got speaking to a canadian guy, about 47. we got on really well and drunk so much and he paid for it all. but then he tried to kiss me which was really wierd. then he tried to give me 1000 rupees and i thought i’d better get out of here (i took the money anyhow)!Now im in panjim and my bus just got changed from 5pm to 7 pm so just waiting now.Might go back to goa for another week on my way back up north. its just a crazy place. its shaped by 30 years of peoples fantasys about paradise, you can see it everywhere. its a place made from dreams and its how people fall in loveBloody brilliant place!
Thus why im leaving…before i get stuck like i so easily do and so many of hundreds of thousands of people do every year. but il be back.

Ummmm day 26, Udaipur 7th of jan.Made my way into town about 11 and met some of the guys i met last night. Students about 20 – 21 but so immature its amazing. there nice guys but bloody full on. we went for a walk and then headed to there flat for some lunch. Im pretty sure they weren’t gay but they kept telling me i had beautiful eyes and how amazing i was and how i should move in with them. And how much they loved me. Anyway. we went dowen to some steps at the edge of the lake too watch the sunset when a film crew turned up, with about 40 beautiful young girls in red saris. There were loads of people everywhere, taking photos and the atmosphere was electric.When they lefty and so did most of the people we cracked open a few beers when this man turns up and says the police are coming. My new friends panic and start shouting and running in circles dragging me in different directions (its illegal to drink beer in a public place).
I made a hasty retreat back to my hotel while they fled in sheer fear. at the top of the hill a police man came and said
“POLICE STATION YOU COME”
When i asked why he said that he thought i was smoking hash, after a few minutes of easeing his suspicions he let me go. The hole night i was expecting the police to turn up. It was exciting but bloody scary!!Tonight i get a sleeper bus to Indore (its cheaper to get a sleeper bus because then you don’t have to pay for accomadation) then in the morning a bus to Mandu. Ben did what i thought he would and never came to india, I only found out this morning so my plans to get there for my birthday are over. Im not going to Mumbai because it is too expensive and heather said i can’t stay but im quite happpy. The food here is amazing and i love it more and more at every meal, just can’t get enough! The sun is shining, the beer is cheap and the women beautiful, Very little to moan about ( aprt from the Inconsiderate bastards who decided to, i dunno, but it sounded like they were building a new bedroom on top of mine at 3am). Not really sure what the best thing to do with my photos really, i think put them on to disk, twice and send one home and keep one with me as my memory card will be full soon.Anyway happy new year etc etc. Must dash (going to sell shantaram and buy another, its a bloody good book you should read it)Ps Note for Muv, sorry about the terrible grammer i was in kinda a rush, must try harder..x
