My walk thru India


It is customary to remove one’s shoes when entering the home.  If you are hired help, you leave your shoes by the outside mat.  If you are a guest, you can bring them inside.  Many Rickshaw drivers drive bare feet.  Small shoe stores – expect you to leave your shoes outside. Therefore, you should not go out barefooted.  When you enter the temple, you should take off your sandals, with a few exceptions.  Some people just did not respect this rule.  It’s monsoon season so it’s muddy and the carpet leading to the alter was so dirty, I would not allow Bob or Lia to bare their feet to go up to the temple.  I have been sick twice already.

People wear sandals here.  No one wear socks, except if you’re in the gym or going to work or school – which is then part of your uniform.

When I visited the doctor, shoes were allowed inside.
Today, Michael and I visited the dentist.  We bared our feet and teeth.

Pirates also used to be barefoot !

20130802-182318.jpgDuring vacation, I went barefoot in the French Carribean (islands of Guadeloupe). My first impression of being a pirate is very positive but I’m missing a parrot 😉

Barefoot living is so much fun !

I highly recommend the barefoot lifestyle in Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Anyone with a barefoot experience to share in the Carribean (not at the beach, please) ?
