My first time in Norway, sent from work. I've always kidna wanted to see this country, so getting paid to do so is rather ass-kicking. Somewhwat similar situation to India. We felw in around 14:00. The base of the clouds was rather low, so durign the final descend it took a while to get through them. We we're going down, with flaps fully extended, just like during a n0ormal landing procedure. It's just you couldn't see the tip of the wing, with the clouds being that thick. I was...

  Yay, independence day! It was genuinely nice to see people placing flags outside their houses and carrying smaller one aroudn the Old Market Square. There was a parade of various uniformed services such as the police, fire brigades, customs officers etc. The coolest thing ? It was opened by lots of Uhlans in full combat gear, with sabres and shit! I must admit, it did look spectacular. Especially that amongst the riders were small carts with  heavy machine guns. There...

I've managed to go out to do some sightseeing , first time since arrival. I went to Kazimierz, to see a photo exhibition about old Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter. As I believe the best way to explore a city is to get lost a little bit, that's what I immediately proceeded to do. Lo and behold, I've ended up in front of the 'Pod Orlem' pharmacy, which, as it turned out, was in the Krakow ghetto area. You may ask, why should we give two shits about this ? Well, this pharmacy was...

I've experienced Polish health system, first time for years. I've always had this image of a crowd of people in the corridor, fighting over who should go in first. Today, I've witnessed an elderly guy running after another woman across the whole corridor because it was her turn to go in! I find it pretty amazing. And that's in spite of the guy sporting a proper 'tache. Most guys over a certain age seems to support (unknowingly) Movember, methinks.

Living in he UK I kinda...

So, a train ride from Torun to Krakow via Warszawa. I did kinda expect a typical conductor, a guy with a burly face hiding behind a massive moustache. None of that. From Warsaw I got onto a InterCity train. And then I got an eyes-opening slap in the face.

My favourite booze hole-in the-wall was open! I managed to acquire two "super strong" beers (8% - they clearly haven't heard of Brewdog) called Haywards 500. They're lagers, of course - but less gassy and a bit sweeter and fruitier; quite refreshing, which is understandable in this climate. There were around 15 - 20 guys by that dodgy window, but it felt as if 50 convicts were trying to push their way to freedom through a basement window. I, obviously trained in the ways of a...

I keep seeing some similarities between Poland and India (or Delhi at least). A few days ago a man working for the university bought a new car. He celebrated that by bringing sweets to share out between other members of staff. Apparently, pupils who have birthdays bring sweets to class to share with other students. The relationship between students and lecturers (at least at university) is very similar to Polish. Students seem to be almost afraid of highly positioned members of staff; they refer...

I think I have started recovering from a serious case of culture shock. Finally I have seen nice areas of Delhi! After a bit of random wandering I managed to get to another branch of the Dilli Haat market. It's another state-run market, mostly for foreigners. It has quite a lot of stalls with traditional crafts as well as several food ones, run by tourism bodies from other regions of India. But the most amazing thing was the serenity of the place. Nicely organised stalls with palm-leaves...

A student yesterday mentioned that Indians have almost total disregard for law and (I believe) rules. Just a simple example, meals at my guesthouse started off as buffets and now shifted towards being served by a waiter. Randomly, I was asked if I want tea and I got one. Previously, it used to come with a cup; not so yesterday (I had to improvise with a glass, which did attract some weird looks). You are not supposed to spit in metro stations - that does obviously happen. I'm not going to...

I managed to get to the city centre. It’s a circular, postcolonial set of buildings, called Connaught Place. I was desperate for some areas not covered in waste and it kind of delivered. It almost looked clean – at least, the fronts of the buildings; when I got into the middle ring, the buildings have gone back to being rather drab and dirty. General decay was swapped for something else, though. Instead for watching out for shit on the road, I had to start watching...

I managed to get out a little bit today, specifically to a place closer to the centre called Chandni Chowk. I was after one of the oldest markets in Delhi; I never found it. What I found, however, is lots of streets in various stages of decomposition. The pavements there were littered with people. Littered is a good word, because they just seemed randomly scattered. Some people crouching, some people sitting, some people just lying there, probably busy being dead. They all seemed...

Seriously, I am about to purchase some pepper spray or kidnap a monkey and train it to jump on people’s head and poke them in the eyes. Then, I will charge 1000 Rupees for a promise of the monkey not following a person home. But the main purpose would be to get through the crowd at metro stations. Today must have been the peak; otherwise I’ll just permanently hire a riksha driver. The crowd was between 15 and 20 men deep, along the whole platform. It genuinely was...

I have noticed there isn’t a huge number of, in my opinion, good graphic design. Some of the adverts on the metro train were absolutely horrible. I’ve managed to find at least several posters, where several Photoshop filters were used, without any solid idea behind it. But the most amazing thing was… a whole billboard designed with Comic Sans! The font which is almost illegal in Western Europe. Amazing. It was an awareness-raising poster about several types...

I think I’m getting to a low point. I’m tired of this stench of shit and piss. I’m tired of my bathroom. I’m tired of the dirt – and that’s me, a re-enactor saying that. It’s not this good, manly, type of dirt that makes your moustache grow bigger and speak in lower voice. Instead, it’s...

I’ve managed to buy some alcohol! Great success, considering general lack of (traditionally understood) shops. Today a very dodgy place opened its blinds. People were flocking to it, making their purchases and quickly scuttling away. The place advertised a “dry day” tomorrow – meaning that, as far as I know,...

Peeing in the street seems a joyful past time, enjoyed by many. Having passed a public toilet, I am not surprised at all. Well, I call it a toilet for want of a better word. Tiles-covered walls, around 180cm tall, almost open plan: no doors, no roof, just small protrusions to designate different holes in the ground. A lot of extremely...

I’ve been here for only several hours and already my senses have been assaulted by a massive number of stimuli – smells, images, sounds. And this weird mist or possibly smog, that will be the undoing of everyone with a sensitive throat.
