Bye Bye Dharamsala 28.10.2010

Last evening in Baghsu
Baker Street in the background music from the past so will be this place here tomorrow evening. To the times of Baker Street no one can go back, but we can come back to this place 🙂
Today we sent already books and some other stuff back to Japan, which worked out quite smooth and we needed only a bit more than 2 hours to get the stuff packed and sent. In India packets must be packed an sealed either on the postoffice or a “packing service”- The nice Tibetan guy from the little Tanka shop next to the postoffice in Mcloudganhi packed and sealed our stuff really in highspeed – thanks for that 🙂
On the way back we got some more “omiyagi”. In Japan it is custom to bring little present, when one comes home from abroad, these presents are called “omiyage”. More important than the packing is the wrapping, Joy Hendrik wrote a book about it, “Wrapping Culture”. Culture in India is very different, it’s very vivid, open, people are singing often. It smells different, sometimes it stinks and some meters further on the nice smell from some incenses are in the air. Weather was wonderful and we could see the snow on the mountains which came down a couple of days ago.
Internet finally works again, the people from Vodafone even called me, looks like service is good in India, just a bit slow 😉 We also rebooked our flight from 2nd to 5th of November, which worked out in the end very smooth – for those interested, we booked via and took their insurance.
Tomorrow we will travel with the nightbus to Rishikesh and we will be back in Japan on the 6th.
