So Tired Of Being GROPED By Indian Men

Every time that a man thinks he can touch me without permission, for his amusement, for “fun” … it astounds me.  First, I wonder what kind of depraved LOSER is the guy that needs to cop a feel of my body to get his jollies. …

My Day Judging Indians: Pantaloon’s Fresh Face Model Hunt 2012

Do Cashiers Steal More From Foreigners?

I’ve written time again about how safe Bangalore is with respect to petty crime compared to my former home in Spain.  In Barcelona, all women adopt a certain way of holding their handbag to ensure no pickpocket attacks or from thieves who cut bag straps…

Feeling Sorry For Myself

I don’t often write just about me.  In fact, this might be the third time now in the 6 months since I started this blog amongst the 90+ articles that I’ve written.  But I have a writer’s block of sorts.  Not that I can’t write…

Survival Guide: Transportation In India

Every country has its own little idiosyncrasies on the streets that make it special.  Differences with the people, with the infrastructure of the roads, and with fun things like our modes of transportation. One of my favourite countries in the world is Morocco.  I’ve only…

Bangalore’s Alcohol And Drug Culture

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I have been really pleasantly surprised about the nightlife here in Bangalore.  Aside from the lack of high-end dance clubs, I mean.  So far Coco Bongo is the only place in town where I’ve been able…
