whats a postie??
yes, americans pay through the nose. reciprocity. we pay what our country charges other countries' citizens to come over. so i cant really complain. i imagine its much worse for a bangladeshi to pay us$130! for uk, it was IR3200, about us$64.
the highest peaks, except for arunachal pradesh, are only around 1500 meters.
bamboo bridges are only in the boonies, where i got my ribs done up! middle of nowhere, for real.
as stated, all the roads are fine and the big bridges too.
i will be in the northeast till early may and then fly out to bkk for a trip to indonesia and beaches for the next 6 months after. without wheels
