Mangoes

I’m flying back to the US tonight. It’s always interesting to be in the airport and see all of the other travelers. I always wonder why they came to India and where they’re going.

I saw a group of youths traveling together who looked like they came for a beach party. One of them was holding a frisbeeĀ as their only carry-on luggage. He must have had a good time.

When I return the mangoes are going to be in prime season. Every Indian is surprised to hear I’ve never tried a fresh mango before. They just aren’t a common fruit in the US as far as I’m concerned. Apparently you can only eat 1 mango per day because they generate too much “heat.” I’m still not exactly sure what Indians mean when they say that, but apparently you feel warm and tingly inside. I look forward to tasting the real deal.
