My plane leaves Detroit Monday afternoon, November 4, and I get to Bangalore at 12:30 a.m. November 6. I’ll have a backpack, a camera and, as a companion, this supercilious beach girl I found a couple of years ago leaning against a truck in a Vermont flea market.



I have a theoretical reservation 30 kms down the road at the Hotel T.A.P. Silver Square on the third floor of a rectangular building adjacent to a McDonalds. My room ($18) has an attached bathroom with  a hydromassage shower head.

Questions to resolve:  Does the McDonalds have those breakfast potato disks? Apple pie? A drive-through window? Does the airport’s shuttle bus to town exist? Will I be able to rouse the doorman at 3 a.m.?

    McD’s yes on the Apple pie and potato disks…with a bit of added spice, drive through no. Door man at 3am, just bang as hard as possible for as long as possible

    Have a safe trip, guard your backpack, looking forward to hearing of your adventures. You’ll never go hungry with McD there!
