1. Re: First Impressions !

we learnt early on in India that saying "no thank you" is interpreted as a "Maybe" and consequently an opportunity to continue to harass you. So you really are best not to look, or acknowledge, and just walk on. I know it seems harsh and a bit rude, but its a game and will drive you mad eventually. as a westerner you are looked at as merely an open wallet. They don't seem to realise how much it costs us to visit...

I mean if they visited the UK or wherever, they would not be treated like this!

The pandols are indeed very nice. They usually have a story that goes along with it. You will find several places called "dansala" that will offer free food - usually vegetarian.
