Good Evening India?

Our goodbyes finished, our parents waved us through the gates, “Big steps were taken”, Quentin Kline and Graeme Sproule were feeling good. For a while. It started off smoothly at the Ottawa airport… Toronto was fine… Delhi was a beast. Everyone warns you about scams, but nothing really prepares you like going through it once. I won’t go into all the gritty details about our rather embarrassing lack of Indian street smarts, but the outcome came out to a ridiculously overpriced eight hour cab ride. However the stars aligned and Graeme and I were dropped off in what seems to be a backpackers paradise Rishikesh.

    Totally curious about how the scam worked! And why the cab ride was 8 hours??!! But all’s well that ends well… who can complain about spending the first night in India, in Rishikesh!

  3. Well the cab ride was supposed to take 5 hours, but about two hours in the engine started sputtering. The transmission wasn’t working properly so we couldn’t go anymore than 3rd gear.
