"You sound to me as though you don't believe in free will," said Billy Pilgrim. "If I hadn't spent so much time studying Earthlings," said the Tralfamadorian, "I wouldn't have any idea what was meant by free will. I've visited 31 inhabited planets in the universe...Only on Earth is there any talk of free will." -- K. Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Ode to a Mango Duet

Mango Duet is
both orange and white, with stick
bought from man on bike!

As of last week, I have left Nick in the traveling companionship of one Mr. Louis-Philippe, our very capable neighbor from the North. Ever since we met Louis over a month ago in Sikkim, our lives have been one long experimental haircut. As I left them to their exploration of greater Rajasthan, Amritsar, and the infamous rat temple, I dubbed them the Mango Duet, a delicious mango-flavored dreamsicle concoction sold by Kwality Walls all throughout India. Cool, refreshing, and always on the verge of melting, they are two great tastes that go together.

This is Louis-Philippe: Quebecois, Greek, New Wave

The first of many haircuts performed in guest houses.
Confidential to Nick: Do you have any hair left?

Team Minnesota would like to wish you both the safest of travels throughout Punjab: may you always have an upper-berth and may all your samosas stay above the floor.



Seriously, what is up with that dude's moustache in the second picture down?
