Yes, you had your first Chickoo. You can spell it anyway you like, it is not an English word. I am glad you enjoyed it, they are very common in India.
Lecker means delicious (for the benefit of the others)

Oh my god!! Now the excitement will be thrice or what???
Anyway, welcome Brother!
I love your signature, next time, add some Italian stuff into it!

The whole hooting and honking story was too much. I have a table and a keyboard with fresh black tea flowing all over it.

@theOne. Ain't LECKER supposed to LEKKER???
And did you just call our one of the best roads as just a STREET??? My God!

See, that is exactly the other way around where I come from. Use your horn and people get really annoyed with you!

Sorry to hear that but I am glad you enjoyed it.

Lecker is the German word for delicious, in relation to food.
Lekker is the way it is spelled in Afrikaans and Dutch! Unlike us Germans they do not only use it for food but for other things as well such as Lekker party, lekker girl, lekker drive, lekker morning... lekker this and lekker that. Quite funny!

We pack our things and check out in the morning. We go back to Ballu's shop for a little while, we're invited to have lunch, but cannot wait that long, we stop for tea instead.
Ballu is doing his morning pooja in the shop, I quickly explain to TheOne® what that is. After tea, it's time to say goodbye to Neemrana.

Instead of going back all the way to New Delhi, we decide to go to Gurgaon - MGF Metropolitan.
Jenny can shop and the driver can meet us there and take us to the Airport where we have an afternoon flight to Mumbai.

The drive back home is wonderful with Jenny surpassing all my expectations. In all fairness she does a job beyond all expectations and almost with no incident.

We have an uneventful flight and a peaceful evening at home. The days are going by faster than I would like them to.

Absolutely hilarious!

Reminds me of the time when I shocked my wife by honking along with everyone else somewhere on the B10 (I think it was near Schwieberdingen): the only time one honks with abandon in Germany is when a marriage procession goes past, little lace bows festooned on the car antennae; true to tradition all cars around created a cacophony as transliterated by Jenny.

It's a lazy Sunday in Mumbai. The two of us horse around at home, laughing and joking.

Jenny has a beauty salon appointment. Time to make the very beautiful one even more beautiful

A YetiHoliday® - TheOne® visits India for the first time.-dsc_0043_thumb.jpg

Soon we go for a walk in the hot afternoon. Why not?
Walk past my home to the Bandstand seaface.

After 20 mins we decide it's better to hop into a rickshaw and go to the salon. I am laughing internally. She's holding on to the side of a typical bandra bouncy auto rickshaw and enjoying herself on a sunday afternoon, this lovely girl from Germany. Life is wonderful.

I get her a carte-blanche at the salon. She settles for a manicure pedicure and a head massage. She's never had a pedicure before. Europe is prohibitively expensive for such luxuries that we take for granted.

Her first head massage with the quintessential coconut oil. her first exposure to coconut oil. Later the lady makes a sweet french plait on a very spaced out and relaxed Jenny-head.

A few visits to some stores on Hill Road

And soon it's time to go home, shower that oil off and visit the MD and his family for a lovely dinner.

End of day 10. These days are really going by too fast.

YES, that is soooooo true! I wasn't even thinking of that. All the cars are decorated with some flowers or bannerets and do an auto-corso through town! Really nice. Thanks for reminding me of this Der Alte!

Good show Jenny @ driving.

Rules of driving in India: All the other vehicles are out there to hit you, so be defensive and HONK! Start learning indian psychology so you can preempt what the other person is gonna do, ok make that learn animal psychology also, to take care of our beloved cows and dogs that use the roads.

Next time you can up the difficulty by trying it out in south india with crazier rules of survival on road.

Nothing happened baba, hence I said uneventful. GoAir, the flight was normal, not delayed - but in my eagerness to book cheap flights, I did not relaise the flight was via Ahmedabad with a stopover. (No change)
