I don't drink
I am finally back from an amazing month in India. I have so many relevant tales to tell which I will feed in over the coming weeks, but once again it was a blessing not to be beholden to alcohol. As we were for the main part in remote areas of India there were so few occasions when I would have been able to buy alcohol, or at least something safe to drink, the torment of wanting a drink would have been terrible. It wasn't until we hit the tourist areas of Kerala that drink became more readily available and needless to say the locals couldn't understand why this white European wasn't in India solely to get smashed on cheap booze!
