Oliver Wakefield – Ollie – India 6

09 Jan 2008

Oliver Wakefield 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
