I’ve been in Jaipur, Rajasthan all week, staying with friends and working at two NGOs, interviewing people there every day, tutoring kids in math (and practicing my Hindi numbers too), and then in the mornings, spending time writing up the interviews. When those interviews get posted (for other social media sites) I will definitely share them here as well. I will also be posting more entries soon.
At the same time, Jerry has also been busy and has prepared the first video of my arrival in his village. Watch to the end to see some great footage he took of me cycling in rural Rajasthan. I watched it last night and I already want to be back on my bike!

But you can sure enjoy knowing how much Jerry will love that bike.
Hey Todd, I’ve just come across your blog and I love the philosophy behind it. It’s always good to try something new, to go outside your comfort zone, so to speak. Another related idea I’m practicing is to ‘go with the flow’ a bit more. It sort of crosses over with your way of thinking. Thanks for your words! From a new follower, Sam 🙂
Thanks – so glad you are enjoying it!
And yes, going with the flow is another great thing to do. Often when we do that, the adventures we have will change but often be so much more than we’d planned.
Before I left on this trip I made up cue sheets and GPS tracks for up to nine days of cycling all over Rajasthan. I could not do that and stay in the village for more than a night. There will be many more opportunities to cycle long distances in my life, quite likely many more even here in India. However, an invitation like this doesn’t come along every day. And in the end it was so much more than five more days of cycling could ever have been.
