Nov 29, 2018 - Living Large at the Leela

Days 14, 15 & 16 Living Large at the Leela When we booked this trip, I had a funny feeling that we might be sufficiently overwhelmed at the end of two weeks. We declined an option through Brand g to go on with them for a couple of days to visit the spiritual city of Varanasi and decided to end our trip with a couple of decompression days at a hotel in Delhi. We chose the Leela Palace in the Diplomatic Enclave part of the city mostly based on location. Turned out to be just what we needed to relax without a set schedule every day. The Leela...

April 2, 2016 Monique's birthday today. We are at the Boheme. Lots of tourists here today. I met a guy from OZ and a girl from America. Nice people. I start chemo tomorrow but I was thinking of starting today. +/- one day means fuck all. I love that everyone respects me here. Especially Karol Bagh. Cara will never have any problems in my colony. Everyone knows her too. Maybe not to the personal extent I know them but through gossip they know she’s with me. She goes walking on her own and everyone gives her respect. Except the fucking...

April 11, 2016 I dropped off my cancer book to Subash today so he can thumb through the pages I have dog ear and sections I have highlighted. My new tattoo is quite large. Lots of bruising. The colors turned out great. Hanuman still needs touch ups but there is still healing to be done. It’s almost over. I’ll get it done in a couple of weeks. I have been under the knife too much lately. I want out of India. I want out of everything. Life, business, travel, I have seen all of these places. I am done. Yet, how do I convey my thoughts to...

April 13, 2016 I have had a strong headache today. I think it’s because my constant thoughts of business. Cara is leaving in 10 days. She will not be here for my last round of chemo. I told Manish that I may call him if I get really sick again. The only thing he could do for me to take me to the hospital. But I could do that myself if need be. I am really getting tired of India. When I am not travelling there is nothing for me to do in Delhi except to take my medicines. And wait for my next round of chemo. And the next MRI to indicates...

April 16, 2016 Just saved a guy’s life! We were in the room and heard a huge commotion outside the door. Normally I just think, “Fuck it, just some drunk Indian fighting with the in-laws”. After about a minute of this I through on my shorts and went out for a look see. There were all the hotel wallas and another five to seven other dudes over this guy who frothing at mouth and gasping for air. He was out. I have 100’s of seizures. It wasn’t that. All they were doing were doing was rubbing the dudes feet!! Thinking the guy was choking I...

April 21, 2016 I was sick yesterday. I got a light case of the giardia. I don’t get it very often. My farts are smelling up the room something fierce. I held Cara under the covers. She’s pretty strong. I have called Mark several times and he hasn’t picked up. He’s either mad at me or Speedy Cash. I went to another dentist today. It was much more a professional firm. The costs were cheap. I paid about CAN $ 90.00 for a root canal. (love :). Dental in Karol Bagh. It’s a chain. They have about 80 units in Delhi. They have plans for another 300...

April 10, 2016 I feel like shit again. Sorry I just spent the last hour hanging with other travelers. I thought she was going to cry. Both the guys held my journey in reverence. Utter 100% reverence. It was touching. I am going to have to stop telling about my story but it always comes through in conversation. I am getting sick of Cara and that fucking room. No so much Cara but the fucking room. They were astounded of my Indian travels. I spoke not of Japan, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Loas, Thailand, Burma, all Europe, Peru. I did tell them...

April 24, 2016. I finally got my Venlafaxine XR. I thought it was losing my mind. I could barely walk. I was going crazy. Much longer and would have done some harm. Plus Cara is gone now. I spoke with her this morning. I am weaning off the steroids a per the doctor’s suggestion. Annie was not in Quito when the earthquake struck. She was in Panama. She is fine. It is still hot. I don’t know how much more I can deal with it. I feel that there is nothing more for me except Cara. She is everything now. Even I am nothing. I can’t wait to leave...

April 26, 2016 Chris P.'s Birthday today. Super hot today. I can’t believe it. BBC states it’s only 40. There is no fucking way. I met a guy from Iraq today and he was dying from the heat. If it’s too hot for an Iraqi, then how does the Canadian feel. FUCKING HOT!! I have been out and about since 10. It’s now 3. I am having a beer at Bohiem. I don’t know how I am going to get back to hotel. It’s only about three blocks but it’s a long three blocks in this heat. I booked an appointment with my oncologist today. I am waiting for confirmation....

April 29, 2016 Happy birthday. I spent my birthday in Delhi last year too. I think it was last year. If not it was the year before. I have to check to my journal. Today is supposed to have a high of 43. I think Cara is either in Varanasi with a side trip to Sarnath. Buddha gave his first Sermon in Sarnath. It’s close to Varanasi. But it is in Bihar’s Savanah. I will be 45-47 there today. The area Buddha was in Bihar, India – for the most part. I have been to all the places where he hung on to. Bihar is nothing but scrub land. His place of...

May 1, 2016 I cannot imagine Trump MAY get the republican ticket. This piss ant knows nothing of the world as a whole. I ran out of water last night. I should have brought my small MSR water purifier. I never bring this thing. I should brought it. I always bring it bike camping. It kills everything but does not filter out the gunk. A lesser person would be concerned. It’s small enough to fit in any pack. I was sick yesterday. It’s the heat. I just saw a guy walk by wearing a jacket.. It’s only 11:30 but it must be in the mid 30’s Plus I am...

April 22, 2016 Day two for the dentist today. I was only in there for 30 minutes. Cara’s friend Nicole arrived last night. She’s travelled before so I think she has an idea. Cara stayed at her hotel last night. They have a group meeting at 6.00. They leave on the 23rd. The tour lasts for two weeks and does not return to Delhi. Cara will have to find her own way back. Hot again today. Nicole is going to get a tattoo. Cara still has to pack her gear. She bought a smaller suit case. She’ll leave most of her gear here with me. If I have any...
