■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: Ever since I started sampling the Gujarati street food around Ahmedabad people have been telling me their favorite is actually Punjabi dishes. I've therefore long since wanted to put this to the test, but how? I don't know what Punjabi street food even looks like! Luckily today I ran into a stall selling a Punjabi potato dish by pure accident. So was it really better than the Gujarati dishes I've had?

■ JAIPUR, INDIA: The biggest surprise of my India journey was how good indian food is. Especially the indian street food. Therefore when our bus from New Delhi to Jaipur did a pit stop I was mighty excited to run out to see what culinary delights and secret food treasures I could find. As usual the price I paid is most likely not what the locals would but who cares? The food was great and it powered me up for the remaining 5 hours of the bus journey.

■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: After the epic hospitality this Indian family you see in the thumbnail showed me whilst touring their home in one of Ahmedabad's roughest neighborhoods, there was never really any doubt as to whether I was going to give them a little token of my appreciation. The only question was how much? Whilst eating dinner with them I had roughly $150 on me but decided to not hand over a single dollar. I know how people around the world and especially in Asia feel when it comes to these things. They don't act hospitable because they expect a reward but because of their belief in humanity. Handing over any sum upon my first visit would thus likely be construed as an insult regardless of how sorely it was needed. So I decided to walk out with the intention of coming back with a much larger sum. I had not yet spent February's Patreon money (the money donated to me by Patreons from around the world which is all earmarked for giving to others I run into on my travels). This family was as worthy a candidate as I think I'll ever run into. So after a brief trip back to my hotel room to get my credit card, off I went to the bank....

■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: Whilst on my way to a mall to buy a new cable for my near derelict computer I spotted something incredible along the road. The rickshaw kept driving but I told him to stop 500 meters later as I did not want to miss out on what I've just seen. I ran back but only to see that the street performers I'd seen from the Rickshaw had packed up their gear and were ready to move on. After a quick chat I was able to persuade them to once again set up all their gear just so I could see their show. This is what happened next....

■ PODCAST: http://www.haraldbaldr.com/podcast ■ After getting a brand new Royal Enfield motorbike in Udaipur Rajasthan’s fourth biggest city we quickly realized we were in dire need of petrol. So off we rode in search of an Indian petrol station. Surviving traffic was no easy feat but we managed to get to a station unscathed. The station however was not at all what I expected. It was a full service Indian station with both women and men filling gas for you. I knew I had to capture this on film.

■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: How cheap can Indian street food get? So low that it's almost free. At least that's what this Gujarati Thali I discovered on the streets of Ahmedabad felt like. But at this cost how large are the portions? How edible and tasty is the food?

■ MUMBAI, INDIA: Dharavi, India's biggest slum, isn't exactly known for being a place where you can mingle with the locals over a couple of cold ones. But I'm not one to shy away from a challenge. I therefore took it upon myself to find a watering hole in Mumbai's roughest neighborhood so I could meet some local residents and hear their stories. Did I succeed or was this one Indian adventure even beyond the scope of this intrepid Northman? Find out in this episode where I go exploring and meeting the people of Dharavi. ■ I tried checking in to India's most famous hotel in my underwear: https://youtu.be/4NOgpnyPJZI

■ INDIA, UDAIPUR: Not all hotel hunts end well. Case in point, this one. After wandering the streets of Udaipur looking for a hotel that wasn't fully booked we found ourselves down by the lake where one of India's most famous 5 star hotels is located. The Taj Lake Palace of Udaipur is famous as it was featured in the James Bond movie Octopussy. Thinking we could do with a night of reveling in luxury after all the traveling, we decided to break our budget and spend the night at this epic looking island hotel. But the hotel itself had other plans.... ■ THIS VIDEO IS PART 1/3 1. LAKE INCIDENT: https://youtu.be/4NOgpnyPJZI 2. RICKSHAW ESCAPE: https://youtu.be/lNopVnRR-kw 3.

After arriving in India with almost nothing to my name I figured it was time to upgrade my wardrobe. On my first day I'd gotten an Indian haircut and now it was time to get a wardrobe to match it. My Indian make-over would not be complete without it. But before I started looking for t-shirts and the Indian Armani suit at a bargain rate in this market I needed something to carry all the things I planned to buy in. The fake market spree therefore started at the Adidas and Nike merchant who was peddling some high quality very real and definitely not at all fake sports rucksacks. What did they cost and was I able to find everything I wanted at Delhi's old market?

■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: After the Veg Manchurian and a couple of slices of pizza it was time to go all out. This next street food stall was my last stop (or so I had planned). I chose a busy looking one and got down to business. I have no idea what the two dishes I ordered were or what they contained. All I knew was that they intrigued me and Iw anted to try both. But the show didn't end there. Walking home I ran into an old favorite of mine....

■ INDIA, AHMEDABAD: I received a request from a viewer to visit an animal shelter. So off I went in search of one. Luckily I didn't have to search for long. Ahmedabad is home to a mega animal shelter which houses injured and sick birds, dogs, turtles and cats. Some have fallen victim to the pet trade. Others have simply been hit by cars or in the case of the birds, have flown into kites and had their wings clipped off. Luckily there is a place that employs a team of 60 people to help these animals heal called Jivdaya Charitable Trust. For more information on their mission, exactly where in India they are located and how you can help them out even from Europe or USA: http://www.jivdayatrust.org/ ■ For people outside India who wish to donate this link is better: https://www.globalgiving.org/donate/35540/jivdaya-charitable-trust/ ■ To follow the Indian expert who guided us through this, go to his Instagram: @wackybirdguy ■ Part 2 Dog Rescue: https://youtu.be/SAa5hRb5ofM
