So, the other day I was with the boys and we couldn't get a taxi. I was desperate to get home, Arthur was fussy and needed a nap and Dorian was hot and needed to be home. We weren't far from our place so I thought we could just hop in an auto-rickshaw and be off. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the auto-rickshaw here in Delhi, they are tiny, three-wheeled green and yellow doorless vehicles that are driven by men usually sitting so casually that one of their legs is bent up on his seat so that he can lean on his knee while driving. Yes, for some reason it seemed like a good idea at the time to go home in one of these. The good news is we made it home in one piece, the bad news is he ran a red light and we almost got hit (the auto-rickshaw is not known for its speed). For the first time in India, I almost lost my cool. Oh, the other bad thing is that Dorian loved it and keeps wanting to go for another ride...
