Fra 1800-tallets selvproklamerede gentlemen til nutidens prætentiøse backpackere.
I "Narrating India" byder vi også på et uddrag fra den populære "Are You Experienced?" af William Sutcliffe. Her har vores rejsefobiske fortæller Dave lige landet i Delhi ...
"I had heard the old cliché about how when you arrive in India, it’s like stepping into an oven, but this hadn’t prepared me for the fact that when you arrive in India, it is like stepping into an oven.
Delhi airport was... it was just taking the piss. That number of people simply couldn't fit into such a small space and not end up eating each other. It wasn’t possible. And no one else even seemed to notice that it was crowded."
I uddraget møder vi Dave, der tager med veninden Liz til Indien i håb om at score hende. Der møder vi så også backpacker-boheme, cockblocker extraordinaire og listepik, Jeremy. I arbejdsspørgsmålene prøver vi igen at inddrage Edward Saids pointer om orientalisme og få en diskussion i gang om den måske omsonste skelnen mellem "tourist" og "traveler".
