Things i'm glad I brought:
MP3 Player (although, it's already falling apart, and being held together by duct tape).
Duct Tape (see above).
Shortwave Radio (The BBC is awesome!)
11 books - I've read 4 already.
Things I should have left at home:
350 tablets to stop the runs.
Drugs - Cipro and such are far cheaper here than in the US, or even in Thailand.. India seems to make dirt cheap prescription drugs.
Things I should have brought with me:
comfortable footware (I assumed I could buy it on the way, neglecting the fact that I would need to break it in.
