Autorickshaws rule!

Okay, here’s what I want to do next year, either of them. Anyone out there want to join me?

  1. Oh, my! What a trip! I have been saying I’d like to get away for a while . . . I’d have to sneak away for this – if my family found out they’d probably have me committed!

  2. Yes! And one of them’s even over Christmas which is when I’d be in India anyway! Now, to get the Korea thing worked out so I can go. . .

  3. Wow! I’ll take the 2nd one — I don’t need the night life, but would welcome the gin and tonics, cricket (which a friend once described to me as baseball on valium), and afternoon tea. I want an autorickshaw!

  4. No thanks. Some of those pictures look similar to scenes I’ve seen in the mountains of West Virginia, from the back of an ATV. I’m fairly hardcore when it comes to roughing it, but I think I need at least _4_ wheel drive…

  5. As much as I would love to…I must pass. I had enough rickshaw and baji excitement in Indonesia to last me a lifetime. That and I have no idea where I will be when these events are occuring. Do enjoy though.

    Idea! Idea! I forsee Holmes as a rickshaw driver in a future novel!! Perhaps now Russell can have her revenge for being a waterbutt…

  6. Wow, that looks like a fantastic adventure. I’ll brush up on my basic mechanic skills and we’ll be off!

  7. Hmmm. I’m afraid to answer this seriously, as I am not at all sure if you are being serious! If you are really thinking of doing this, Christmas season would be the best time for me. (What is India like in December?) Although how I would pay for it, I have no clue. But I would be Game if you really are. 😉 (I wonder if there is a minimum age limit for participants …?)

  8. NO – I COULDN’T GO. I WOULD SEE ONLY
    THE DIRTY LITTLE KIDS BEGGING FOR MONEY AND FOOD AND AFTER GIVING ALL –
    I WOULD SIT AND CRY!

  9. OK, MS. King, no more taking a year off from writing. You quite clearly have too much time on your hands!

    Oh, but what fun, eh?

  10. Well, having just signed my second daughter up for Driver’s Ed today, I shall either have nerves of steel or be a nervous wreck, but in comparison, this looks like a whole lot of fun…
