My accommodations in a remote village of the Konkan Coast are not for the faint of heart….I have a bucket and a faucet, that’s a plus.
My accommodations in Nasik were ‘very’ deluxe in comparison.
Oh and there is a spider the size of a bike helmut running around inside my room…

What strikes me about all such posts, Roberta, is that this is nothing like “roughing it” in the states. There’s always some public infrastructure to ward you off dangers, like avoiding the Hanta virus or the plague in New Mexico.
There are all these dangers or nuisances to which the local populace is typically already acclimated, like the ants, for better or worse. Here we may rely upon the national culture to provide enough of an adaptation. There it’s all culture shock.
Good on you for braving this and for having the wherewithal to share it with us.
I have become used to it….mostly 🙂 After the first week everything just fell into place.
Haha!! Get a cutting board and kill that spider!! Getting ready to head out and missing India already.
The food here is awesome! The owners made an incredible fish and prawn dinner! I guess that makes up for the spider and he bathroom facilities 🙂
