NRI = NONRESIDENT INDIAN
From my 2004 Diary:
5:20PM, 14 JANUARY 2004. ROOM 106. HOTEL SKY PALACE. KOVALAM, KERALA, INDIA.
India is about being bored out of your skull, missing everyone/thing from home, and getting over it.
FRI 16 JAN. LIGHTHOUSE BEACH, 7:30AM
Ut-oh. A man who can only squat and crawl across the sand is headed my way....
WED 21 JAN 04

THURS 22 JAN 04. KOVALAM HOSPITAL WAITING ROOM
You walk in, the fan goes on. What must they think of us?
The hill has made me tre lightheaded. Perhaps not a good idea to see the doctor a day early to tell him I'm OK, so I can go to the movie tomorrow instead of our appointment.
So nice to sit down. Sweating bullets. Looking ill, I bet.
Many people here today.
My writing looks bizarre even to me. At least I'm in the right place if I pass out (Why am I wearing the longsleeved heavy pink top?).
Maybe I'm dehydrated.
Just felt faint.
So easy it'd be to give in to it.
At least I'm in the right place....
FRI 23 JAN 04 ROOM 106. KOVALAM (AFTER SEEING KHAAKI)
Stop me before I shop again.
