Jogging in Chennai, India

We'd traveled primarily in northern India before going to Chennai in the south. In all of the cities we'd seen in northern India, the presence of other people, weird traffic patterns, cows, and trash made jogging outside impossible. But in Chennai, we stayed at an apartment complex with a very clean parking garage around which we jogged each morning. ...

Lydi Talks About Travel and Moldy Pillows on Himalayan Hike to New Hotel

Our first night in Naddi Village was a nightmare, but we persevered to find a new hotel, acceptably clean and accommodating hotel near Mcleodganj. In this video, Lydian and I talk about the crappy things that happen when we're traveling. At this point in the journey, we still hadn't found a new place to stay and weren't sure whether there would even be a place with electricity and clean pillows.Related ...

People-Watching: Five Bricks in Delhi

In India, it isn't always easy to decipher what people are doing. In this video, Lydi and I watch some men who stand around looking at five bricks sitting on top of an apartment building across the way as though they planned to build something big. ...

Delhi: Handmade Newspaper Bag for Rice and Eggs

In northern India, in both Delhi and the Mcleodganj area, we received things like eggs and rice from vendors in these handmade newspaper bags. I don't know whether the vendors made them themselves or someone else made them and sold them to the vendors. Either way, it's innovative and resourceful!

Delhi Taxi: Street Happenings at a Random Intersection

While sitting in traffic in Delhi, India, I decided to film these people doing something. It looks like they're just going about their normal, everyday activities--there are clothes hanging on a line, a bicycle, and it looks like they're doing something with water. We'd just passed a woman who'd placed a tiny baby down in a dusty median along a busy street to sleep, which was what prompted me to turn my ...

Holiday Inn Airport in Delhi, India — By Jennifer Shipp

Two years ago, we stayed in an Indian hotel that looked pretty good online even though it wasn’t a name we were familiar with. When we arrived to experience tourism in India for the first time, the hotel was quite a shock (specks of blood or something on the lampshades and walls, hairy sheets, and a door that was literally falling apart.  From that experience we learned to take fewer chances when traveling ...

Driving in India for Westerners — By Jennifer Shipp

Traffic and riding in cars in India left quite an impression on me the first time I was here. Driving behaviors in India are quite a bit different from driving behaviors in the United States. They’re so different, in fact, that I would never recommend that an American attempt to drive in India until they’d lived in the country for at least a year and probably not even then.
