while away,

travelling is nice. while away, i learned that

  • kissing is prohibited on kuala lumpur trains.
  • maharashtrians sometimes burn tobacco and use it to clean their teeth.
  • in telugu, the the honorofic ‘garu‘ can be used for both men and women.
  • water is boiled with cardamom in kerala, giving the water a subtle flavour like green tea.
  • in bengaluru/bangalore, rum is sometimes sold in tetra-packs.

most importantly, though,

  • in a pinch, you can use shampoo to wash a tee shirt.
