    ... to have beef on the menu a lot and it is ridiculously nice. There was even a roof we could go up to and have our smokes, with dad initially being paranoid about smoking here, after asking Sam he said no problem and led us to the shelter of the roof. Not only that but at dinner that evening he came and gave Dad a big bag of dope, which has served me since.

    Next up on our trip was Auroville, where we were to spend the next 10 days. Auroville is a spiritual community, which aims to achieve human unity through non religious means. It was started by a French woman, known as 'The Mother', who has been ironically deified. If you didn't know this background, you might mistake it for a hippie commune/weird religious cult.
