Best Indian-Cooking Website Ever

My new favorite cooking site is Manjula’s Kitchen, which from a digital professional’s point of view is ideally organized and contains all the content you could want for Indian cooking info. But I like it even better for the videos, which are clearly just Manjula’s husband taping her in her kitchen and forgetting to edit […]

The India-Trip Awards and Superlatives

Namaste, homes. The Peek India MAP trip’s almost at an end: bags are packed, souvenirs purchased, interviews completed and final curries consumed. MAP itself isn’t over, and in fact we’re about to crash headlong into the hella busy presentation-finalizing phase that doesn’t wrap up until April 28. But the India portion of the project is […]

The Delhi / Agra Visit

So, I finally saw it. The Taj Mahal is a pretty awesome site. I think the Taj and the Dome of the Rock mosque in Jerusalem are the two most beautiful buildings I’ve seen, though the Taj is definitely better from a distance and the Dome of the Rock is at its best fairly close-up. […]

The Bombay / Mumbai Visit

I am back from the Internet desert that was Bombay. (More on the name later.) My hotel didn’t have wireless and the Internet cafe wasn’t always open, thus the lack of updates even via Twitter. But you know I’m not letting you down, so here’s a summation of the city as I saw it over […]

The Indian Head Waggle

A unique Indian gesture is the head waggle. It is pretty much done anytime one is saying, “OK, sure, will do”. Naturally we had a contest to see who could do the best one:

Hit The Road

What up, amigos. The other day I was avoiding a decrepit bus and stepping between four auto-rickshaws when I thought, “Stepping between four auto-rickshaws and avoiding a decrepit bus isn’t an everyday occurrence in the United States. I think there may be some material here. Hey, that dog understands traffic patterns.” For those who want […]

More India

This Twitter blogging is way easier than actual blogging, but here are some notes anyway. Food here is really cheap. Beer, strangely, is not so much. Tonight my teammates and I went out for dinner. Total cost for three people’s dinner and drinks: $11. Beer portion of that: $4 for two beers. It’s a little […]

India Arrival

I’ve been here now for 2.5 (sorta) days, so time to catch everyone up on what’s gone down with some phat platitudes: Flying to India takes a long time. The other three Peek India MAPpers and I counted things up and realized it took us 36 hours to go from door to door — Ann […]

Tomorrow, We Leave

While it’s not so dramatic in our modern, travel-friendly age, tomorrow marks my departure for India. On a personal level, it’s going to be strange to be leaving my classmates, my Ann Arbor experience, and most of all, my wife. Regardless, I’m still very excited for a once-in-a-lifetime rare opportunity to travel halfway around the […]

Namaste, Dudes

Hey readaz. Trying to find a job for summer = time-consuming and thus bad for blogging, but I got some mad cool news recently when I found out that I’m going to Bangalore, India, for five weeks as part of the Multidisciplinary Action Program (or MAP, for the acronymically challenged) at Ross. Sweet! So, some […]
