A few pro tips for your next trip to India.
Start your trip by relaxing at the airport with friends. Have a beer.
You have to have a beer.
Why have a beer? Because your next 24+ hours will be spent on a plane.
That is a lot of time. On a plane. So get a beer.

Also, if you're going to India, get your hands on a dosa or, better yet, dosaS (plural). It is delicious fermented lentils that result in a crepe-ish looking delight. It comes with sauces that are delicious. Embrace the dosas.
Eat the dosas.

Lastly, try to get access or, better yet, be a part of good auto rickhsaw accident while you're there. A good auto rickshaw accident would be one where no one is hurt, but does result in a lot of screaming. I'm serious. It's a delight.
No one was injured in this particular accident.
I was riding in the middle of the yellow rickhsaw pictured:

Other pro tips can be found in traditional travel guide books, so I'll leave you to those devices.
Enjoy your trip! And take photos!
