Imagine a place where a local Indian meal with all of its curries, herbs, and vegetables can cost from two to five dollars. Imagine a place where one second youll smell incense burning in the air, and in the very next youll get a whiff rickshaw exhaustor cow or even elephant exhaust, if youre lucky. Imagine a place where perfect people will treat you like family, inviting you to weddings or into their homes, leaving it up to you to decide whether or not to accept or reject their offers of kindness.
