What to do? My dad just came with a goody bag of American stuff and it did not include floss. I'm sure they have it somewhere in India though. I'll try the city. Actually, come to think of it, the Haverford College bookstore also does not carry floss. They have toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes, mouthwash, organic tibetan trail mix...but no dental floss. I guess it's not an Indian thing at all, just an institution of higher learning idiosyncrasy. It's funny how you can find similarities between places as different as UofH and Haverford.
Anyway, that post was kind of ridiculous, but not to worry. CIEE is taking us to Mysore, Sravanabelagola, and Melkote, (with a two hour stop over in Bangalore). We'll be seeing temples and palaces and art, and we will also be introduced to traditional Brahmin food. So I'll have lots to write about after that.
Namaste aur phir milenge!
