I've been in India for less than a week and am now in my third city. From Delhi to Allahabad, back to Delhi and now in Mumbai. As always I find these homecomings increasingly disconcerting and comforting, two disparate reactions that confuse me. What was once familiar appears unfamiliar and what was unfamiliar (the fast pace of growth and all its attendants) seems strangely familiar. Allahabad was the same. But for God's sake we have a McDonalds. A McDonalds in Allahabad. Mumbai is still depressingly expensive and the traffic makes me want to scream. Delhi was well...Delhi. Chaotic and Panju.
