So no one is reading this becuase I'm a bad blogger and never blog. I'm going to be better though, I promise.
So last week we got back from Leh in kashmir. It was so nice to get away from Chandigarh and see some of India. I wrote everyone about that trip already though so this is about last weekend in Chandigarh.
Saturday night was one of those ridiculous things that happen in India. After getting good and drunk plaing drinking games with my two friends from Denmark we headed to Arizona, supposidly the best night club in town. Of course it was couples night. A strange rule they have in Chandigarh to try to get girls to the bar where guys can only get in if they come with a girl. This generally results in no one being in a bar since most girls in the city are not allowed out after 8:30. So we argued with the bouncer for about 15 min before calling it quits to wander to another bar Blue Ice where the couple rule is less strict if you're white (I know it's awful but hey we needed more drinks). On the way we ran into a rickshaw driver party where they were playing instruments and singing on the sidewalk. There were about 30 of them and they offered for us to sit with them and gave us the instruments to try. Then the chilim came out (you can look it up if you want) and we all hung out for about 30 min singing and playing tablas which I'm very bad at. Then the party just ended and the drivers started to set up their beds right there and go to sleep.
So it was off to Blue Ice for one more drink. Again a brief discussion with the bouncer before the manager came and let us into the empty club and had to reopen the bar for us since it was past 12. Anyway it was a surreal night and the kind of thing that just seems to happen around here.
Take care, love you all
