FREE BIRD T.V.: Episode 2 (Joe vs the kids, Jodhpur street cricket)
Hello from Varanasi!
We arrived here this morning on a night train from Khajuraho, where we spent the last four days checking out Kama Sutra-esque temples (photos to come!), riding rickety bikes into the countryside, and trying to acclimatize to the increasingly scorching Indian sun. It’s HOT. So hot I need a nap after strolling outside for ten minutes between the hours of 2 and 4 pm. So hot the cement singes my feet when I hop up a set of temple steps. So hot I relish the cold bucket showers provided by our gritty hotel bathrooms.
As you may have noticed in the title, this post marks Episode 2 of Free Bird T.V., a series of videos I’ll be sharing from the road.
But where is Episode 1, you ask?
It’s on our laptop, waiting, begging, and pleading for an internet connection that doesn’t cut out halfway through uploading it. Episode 1, called Welcome to Delhi, is to be our debut. It’s an eight-minute collection of sounds and images we recorded in Delhi and edited in hotel rooms and on train rides throughout Rajasthan. It’s out first-ever video project, and we can’t wait to share it. (Are you there, internet gods? It’s me, Courtney.)
In the meantime, here is Episode 2–a shorter clip in which Joe gets schooled by a pack of kids playing street cricket.
If you like, please re-post and share with your peeps! We love to spread the word/visuals on all things connected to travel.
Episode 1 and more to come…
