March 10. Hard wood.
We buy hard wood. It is expensive and they don't cut it right. But I don't give up and promise to manufacture the table, somehow. We have promised to make a set of tables for the children so that they can study in a more organized fashion. Currently they just take their schoolbooks and stationary ...

March 9. Nehru and Ruby.
At 7:20 Nehru and Ruby come to pick us up from Chennai/Madras' main railway station. I have never experienced such kindness and hospitality and can only stammer thank you when they hang a flower necklace over my shoulder and bring us to a car. We have to travel four hours to get to the orphanage. ...

The Mall does ...
March 5. Slumdog CORP.
The Dharavi slum is allegedly the largest in Asia. Ten million people live here. It is the slum of the 'slumdog millionaire' movie. But this slum seems totally peaceful to me. Interactions, however chaotic at first sight, go smoothly, people are smiling. It might be just the surface, of course. We walk around through the ...

march 3. Yes captain, no captain.
We fly to Mumbai and arrive there in the morning. The airport looks nice and transportation to downtown, down the peninsula, is easy to get: we take an autorikshaw and a slow commuter train to the place where our couchsurfing host lives. The man is a captain and the place where he lives is an ...
