- I’m accepting that being sweaty is ok. It’s a part of daily life now to sit in the office, even under a fan, to have a river flowing down my back.
- I’m liking the taste of water – never did before – but then without it I wouldn’t get very far. It’s great that the office has a filter system on each floor. We even have a colleague who fills our water bottles every morning for us.
- I’m understanding that saying ‘Namaskar’ to someone you walk by on the street will probably get you more of a return stare than a return greeting. But thankfully people are also finally recognising me and I’m being charged regular prices at veg stalls and for autos. Last week I told one auto driver that the price he quoted me for a straight run home was too much (and it actually was compared to other journeys) but he replied to me ‘Mam you paid this much last week’. I’m sure he was right. There are times when I’m too tired or too hot to argue the price and I just want to get home. There are other times I’ll get the best value I can.
(Another thing I'm getting used to)
