When Visiting India
- Do NOT plug an American power strip into the wall using an adapter; they power strip is made for 120 VAC, the wall outputs 240VAC, and cheap adapters just change the shape of the plug. It will go PZZT and the magic smoke will escape.
- DO bring toiler paper
- DO expect spicy food; it's delicious, but not what we eat in the US
- Dress well; button down shirts and blue jeans. When I was visiting, relatively few people wore t-shirts or other such garments
