You know that chase scene in Ronin where they are driving the wrong way in the tunnel and cars are flying everywhere? That’s what driving in India is like, except add a few billion buses and motorcycles to the mix to spice things up a bit. Day 1: 146km, ~7 hours on the road The official launch party kicked off as planned with all the rickshaws circled up around a podium and a bit of fanfare. After many photo ops, a huge line of rickshaws all circled the city and then disappeared. Literally two minutes before leaving, these two people from a random team came up to me and asked where I was going and if I wanted to caravan with them. They were headed east and up also and seemed to have a map, so I said “ok let’s see!” That, you see, was my plan – no plan needed! Heading out of town, the long line of 50+ rickshaws rapidly dwindled, until I found myself completely lost with no one I knew around, following a random set of three rickshaws hoping they knew what they were doing.
