Anyway, Andrew bought some stuff for his mama, and I spent considerably less money and bought some stuff for... some people. I haven't decided who yet, but isn't that half the fun? They have some pretty amazing cashmere and pashmina scarves here, but don't get your hopes up, ladies; they're pretty expensive. Probably has something to do with all the hand weaving and needle work. I probably won't even get one for myself... nah, I probably will, but doesn't it make you feel better if I say I won't? Now that I have my fat stack of cash, I'll probably be buying a lot more stuff that no one needs. There's some rule about how you can't take rupees out of India, and they only exchange up to a certain amount at the airports before you leave, so it's probably best that I just spend it all before we go. That way at least we'll have something to show for all Matt's hard work. Andrew and I finally went into the Bollywood men's store looking for some great clothes, and boy we were not disappointed. My favorite piece was a tight black mesh tank top... I'm considering bringing a couple back for Nate and Dad to wear on their fishing trips. Maybe they have a small one for Mason, too. That way you can tan through the shirt.
This van is outside the Bollywood for men store... I don't think it's moved in a long while. Incidentally, this is what their ambulances look like. Not the dirt part, just the van part.
In other news, Matt has been sick for almost two weeks now. We thought it was a cold, but now I think it may have moved on into something much more sinister, like a sinus infection. He promised that if he wasn't feeling better today he'd go to the doctor... I think he'll probably just lie and say he's feeling better so he doesn't have to go. I guess I can't really blame him, though. I saw an "emergency center" yesterday, and it did not look inviting. I think you might come out of that place a hell of a lot sicker than you were when you went in. Seriously, he'd probably lose a limb or something. Let's just all hope real hard that his cold goes away soon. I know he's really tired of it, and at the risk of sounding un-nurturing, so am I. Still on track to leave, um, sometime. Andrew is flying out through Delhi and going to see the Taj before he leaves, so maybe Matt and I can do that as well. We probably won't have to worry about it too much because we'll surely be back. We just can't get enough of this place, you know?
