THE AMBASSADOR & HIS COMMANDER.
Driving at night in India is RIDICULOUS! With trucks stacked to the horizon, shrilling their horns and dominating lanes they pretty much represent instant death in a pile of mangled metal. Although this has me freaking out it doesn’t phase the locals. They see it as an extreme version of Frogger where they are all out to get bonus points and high scores.
As we warm up to the driving situation we have our driver Narayaan taking care of business. In between weaving through trucks, cows, camels and rickshaws he’s on the phone to his babe of a fiancée telling her sweet nothings. Making sure we get safely from A to B Naaryaan is an absolute chilla and has only had one crash so far! Legend!
Soon we will be making our way up to the Himalayas and will be taking over the drive. Hopefully by this time us and the Ambassador will be in shape to haul up some mountains and dodge the local cattle.
Wish us luck as driving in India is like a Camel peeing backwards, it just doesn’t make any sense.
