    The flight was good. Paris security is way tough, everybody got the patdown before boarding the plane. Our luggage didn't make the trip out of france unfortunatly. Hope its having a good time there. The weather here is a lot like southern Louisana this time of year, hot and humid.

    I found the training groud for New York cabbies last nite. Tailights are an option it seems and turn signals are way too much trouble. So its lots of throttle and the horn 'cuz here we come get out of the way. I know that here they drive on the left like England. But mostly it was drive wherever they feel like.....

    Hope the surgery goes well and you are able to make a full recovery.

    Been doing the tourist thing and sightseeing. See lots of old postal jeeps here, well almost the same. These have a stretched wheelbase, maybe 15" longer. Almost everything with 4 wheels has a diesel in it though. Lots of the old 3 wheel auto livery taxi's too, some have been beefed up and are used as small pickups hauling freight. Even with the way so many people drive I've seen very few wrecks or damaged cars.

    Lots of goats running around loose here, hey 'fumes......

    The cops here don't carry guns, if they need them they have to go get them

    I'll admit I like women with long hair and dark eyes, but the hairy leg thing:crazy:
    If I could get past that theres a lot of very beautiful women in this town.

    My luggage caught up with me this morning. That helped a lot.

    The hairy leg thing, saw a woman yesterday that has hairier legs than I do.
    But the weird thing is the body modesty thing, keep the legs covered, but show the tummy:confused:

    I'm in the town of Chennai. It has about 6 million people in it. Traffic is insane but very polite. Pedestrians will step off the curb anywhere but yield to everything (guess they don't want to get run over). The big trucks all have the diff cover painted with these really bizarre or grotesque faces on them. I had to ask why. Its so animals don't try and sleep under the trucks, the faces scare them off.
