A quick ‘Postcard from the Edge’
‘Cyberabad’ is what they call this place, the monsoon has just started (a little early) so the hot air has a damper feel to it. That would probably explain why we got a good drenching on the way back from the restaurant last night as well.
The Indian Monsoon is the largest weather system in the World and its annual pilgrimage often wreaks predictable havoc on the Indian population. The silver lining is the gift of rain – lots of it, in fact eighty percent of the country’s annual quota of he stuff. Low cloud, flooded runways and an overburdened infrastructure make the sub continent an interesting place to operate during the summer Monsoon. It also brings the Mosquito out in numbers guaranteed to do wonders for your self control.
The new ‘Rhajiv Ghandi’ airport is exceptional, really World class. It just shows what can be done with a clean sheet of paper and a pile of cash.
