Rickshaw Runaround

Ever wonder why we keep griping about Indian rickshaw drivers?

Keep in mind that Ken started recording after this guy had been following us a while. Sheesh.

The next day a rickshaw driver was hassling us, and I told him, “No, we don’t need a ride. Have a nice day.” And he drove off.

An Indian voice behind us said, “It’s good to hear someone say ‘Have a nice day.'” Here we go, I thought, another tout trying to make a sale.

Hardly. The speaker turned out to be a jolly Indian man who now lives in Florida… and can’t wait to get back. He visits his family in India every year, and rickshaw drivers always try to rip him off too (is no one safe?). Even more than pizza and American beer, he looks forward to one food item: “The number one thing that I miss badly is the milk from USA. The moment I go home, I open the fridge and have a cold glass of milk.”

As we parted ways, he said, “God bless America.”
