View Kickin' it solo in Asia on Patrick_K's travel map.
It's been an interesting day of travelling, that's for sure! First off I met Ertan, the turkish furniture exporter. Me and Ertan had a laugh during the four hour flight from Stockholm to Istanbul, talking about all of the places we´ve been to. The impression I´ve got is that the guy truly is a cosmopolitan and has an ace in his sleeve when it comes to picking up girls. After a couple beers, we had a giggle with the flight attendant. Good fun!
On the next flight I met Prabhu, a cool Indian guy in my age studying to become a pilote in Georgia. He flies Learjets during his working hours Unfortunatly, beeing so tired as I was, I forgot to take a picture. Prabhu gave me a good reminder though, that I will use during my stay in India: "If you think over something twice in Europe, you have to think it over trice in India!" Good stuff!
Now I'm in my "not so cheap ugly hotel in the suburbs of Mumbai", and the plan for today is to buy some good to have medication and to find myself a better hotel or hostel. Some dinner (indian?) would be nice too. Seems that it will take two days or so in order to kill my jet lag, so easy times now
