During my final week Mysore I came to the conclusion that my Tevas had outlived their usefulness (to me) and were ready to find a new owner. So I decided instead of lugging them to New Zealand I would leave them behind in India.
My tevas were purchased in NZ prior to leaving for South East Asia in August 2007. They have spent a lot of time wandering around Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal and India. They started to get stinky in Vietnam, they gave me stunning tan lines in Laos and started to fall apart in India – first in Agra (see post), then in Puskar (see post) where they were filmed by French TV.
So it is with great sadness I part with my Tevas…..
It is with even greater sadness that I will be replacing them with a pair of sensible work sandals.
