Banana lassi in Varanasi, India.

Thali me banana (lassis) – what I ate in India: month 2

Quite frankly, two weeks of nothing but (delicious but) similar vegetables served up with nothing but the same slices of bread makes you tiresome fast. The food we ate at our homestay in Setrawa was “tasty,” but when we left we needed a bit of a break from Indian food.

And then we got sick. Legitimately Indian-style Delhi Belly sick. And during that escapade we had no desire to eat Indian food. No. Desire.

And so, month two in India features very little Indian food. There is a lot of chowmein and fried rice, the two things we tend to order when we look at a menu and think “there is nothing on here I have any desire to eat.” And way too many times I just ate French fries, when I really looked at a menu and thought “there is nothing on here I have any desire to eat…”

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
