Driving is an extreme sport in India. The country has probably the best-worst drivers in the world. If i were to compare a rollercoaster ride with driving on an Indian highway, I’d say the former is one relaxing spa treatment. Anyway, we were quite lucky to have a friend from the embassy, who arranged for our own private ride. Near hits and would-be head-on collisions aside, I was not able to get myself to sleep during the long drive was because there was so much to see: the mustard fields that seem to go on endlessly, caravans of camel pulling whatever big load they pull, the beautifully painted trucks, and of course, cattle… lots and lots of cattle.
