When Patricia decided to travel in India with her long lost English friend, Sally, she had no idea that Sally had become a bag lady.
During their backpacking adventure Sally dragged around a monster case that became so attached to her it almost wagged its handle when she entered the room. Meanwhile Sally collected and collected, clothes, papers, plastic bags until she had quadrupled her baggage.
Armed with the Kama Sutra under her arm, Patricia with her love of architecture and history, and with her mad friend in tow, (the same mad friend who wanted to bring home every hurt dog and cow they encountered), the two friends caught buses driven by speed freaks; caught packed trains with the wicked witch of the north; were almost marooned in the Tha Desert after an unfortunate dog incident; while camping were almost camelnapped in Rajasthan; were almost drowned at Mount Abu, and were definitely attacked by amorous monkeys in Delhi.
With the Kama Sutra Under My Arm is a hilarious romp, as well as an informative historical and architectural travel book. Once read, India will never look quite the same and neither will suitcases.
