being alone in a new city where you don’t speak the local language could feel daunting, but most often in India little miracles happen along the way to make things feel homey. case in point – I was somewhat distracted as I walked out to the street to hail a rick. this one stopped for me, and before I looked up, the driver asked me if I was going to a certain khadi shop. I looked at him and realized that he was the same auto driver from the previous day! we had a great laugh over this and off we went; this time to another khadi shop nearby.
