Ok, so the feeling of being very nervous has been overtaken by the feeling of being incredibly nervous. We have 2 days left in Oz before we jet off to India for a month and I've got the usual 'Oh crap, I've forgotten something really important that I'll only remember a week later when our house has burnt down!' going through my head.
We are almost ready. Just a few niggliy things to sort out and we should be good. As usual though, we are taking waaaaay too much stuff with us. But by the sounds of it, the other people we are traveling with are taking loads more than us so by comparison we won't look so bad. Today is also the last day I will shave. I begin my quest to grow a beard now! Soon, the long flowing face pubes will sprout forth from my chinny chin chin and all will be amazed. It will be cool. It will be awesome. it will be bloody irritating and hard to get used to for the first 3 weeks :( A well.
In India, its supposed to be a sign that you are a respected and all round top notch guy. So hopefully all the tourist flys will leave me alone.
