Styrenes v. India

It’s not so different really, at least at the hotel desks, where managers have all been Indian, giving me flashbacks with their accents and manner during check-in procedures as we chat about my trip last year. The only differences are the lack of haggling and registering with a passport, visa number and previous/next city plans.

Except DC and Baltimore, where the background cast of the Wire worked some of its many day jobs. And still, there was an Indian resonance there too, as the power went out throughout the entire hotel twice, and the kitchen ran out of breakfast except for instant oatmeal with lukewarm water.
