The 'Stache

DSC01928.JPGSince we've been in Delhi, I've been growing a small mustache. It just seems like the right thing to do -- Indians guys, especially those in the south, LOVE their facial hair. I've never had one before, so it's looking weird (and lopsided) right now. It's also coming in a lot lighter than my hair, so I doubt that many Indians are impressed.

The mustache project was inspired by our former next-door neighbor Duncan. A colleague of Don, he helped us so much in our first days here, and was also great fun to know. While we knew him here, he sported a mustache of his own. Now that his India stint is over and he's gone back to London, it seems important to make sure the mustache at least remains. I'm not sure if he's left his own alone or what.

In other news, tomorrow is Ugadi, the Hindu New Year in this part of India. It's a pretty religious day, as far as I can tell -- I think we'll be celebrating by going shopping.

Funny. I always thought it would be funny to have a 70's hard rock cover band called "Stache," and we'd all have these awesomely skeezy moustaches. Yet another dream of mine crushed by the cruel workings of reality.
