One of the running jokes before my visit to India was the spicy food. Kalyan was trying to convince me that there was a chilli chicken dish that would "burn my ass." (The origin of that is really Neal from Yahoo! Japan, who had an ass-burning experience after eating way too much of the stuff.)

Aren't you glad I shared that little story?

Anyway, as Kalyan notes several of us went to RR's last night for dinner. The food was quite good. It was the first meal so far here that contained rice instead of bread. We had a variety of spicy chicken bits and some fish--all good.

In other words, the food here is most excellent. And the folks in Yahoo's Bangalore office know how to treat visitors from the U.S. Thanks, guys!

In about 14 hours (at 2:30am local time), we'll hopefully board a plane for the first leg of our return trip to the U.S. It's hard to believe the week is almost over already. But, hey, I got to sign shirts yesterday! And I even got the chance to interview a job candidate this morning.

Do they drink back tea when eating chilli chicken?

That's what happened to the missing 'l'. It left the tea for the chicken!

Jeremy I am jealous! What I would not give for a whiff of that pungent chicken! It has been a long time since I have been home and your adventures through Yahoo! just make me wish I could travel like you do. :-) Good luck on re-entry!

Yeah, Indian chiles are the hottest thing around. I once told a friend I loved hot food so she made me a blistering hot curry with those tiny Indian chiles that come packed in jars. I had a shaving cut on the edge of my lip, just a tiny nick, some chiles got into it and half my face swelled up.

Thai chiles are hotter.

Hey those small little chillies in Indian cuisine are actually Thai Chillies. They go by a different name in India.
