For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer.It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal."

- When battery is down to the last grid/bar, do not answer the phone as the radiation is 1000 times.
Haha! OK... just thought I would share - it made me smile :)

Next, Flat Abigail found some drums. They are called Tablas and you play them with your hands. She had fun playing with them!
Flat Abigail decided she wanted to buy a party dress. So she found an outfit that a girl her age might wear to a party, wedding or a special event. It’s very sparkly!
After all of that shopping, Flat Abigail was hungry. So we stopped to get a snack. Flat Abigail decided she wanted a Samosa. It’s a triangle shaped fried pastry that is stuffed with things like potatoes, peas and onions. She loved it and ate 2 of them.
As we walked down a galli (alley), we saw a horse and a horse cart. White horses are used in Hindu weddings. The groom rides into his wedding on a white horse. Sometimes he sits on just a horse, and sometimes on a horse cart. Flat Abigail was excited to see the horse!
As we walked down the road, Flat Abigail saw a jewelry shop and just had to stop! She quickly jumped into the bangles!
We decided to meet some kids that were in the Third Grade. They had fun taking a picture with Flat Abigail!
Flat Abigail wanted to see what the School Buses here look like. There are many different ways that kids get to school here, but one way they go is on cycle rickshaws! It's kind of like a cage on wheels :)
It is very dusty in this part of town, and Flat Abigail got something stuck in her ear, so we decided to visit the guys that clean out ears. That is their job! They all wear red hats so that you know who they are. If you look closely you can see pins stuck in their hats. That is what they use to clean out people’s ears. When Flat Abigail got her ears cleaned out, she just squatted on the sidewalk and the man that cleaned her ears just squatted next to her and cleaned out her ears!
Last, but not least, we decided to stop for lunch. We stopped at McDonald’s! There are McDonalds everywhere. It is very different here though. They do not serve any beef here. They sell a lot of chicken burgers and they have a lot of different kinds of veggie burgers. Flat Abigail got a Veg Pizza McPuff Happy Meal!
