All good

Please check out the Tour Diaries over at Cricinfo. Vaidyanathan is a very nice guy (I base this on one courteous reply he sent me after I had impolitically blasted off a quasi-flame at the new Surfer blog a few months ago), and it tells in his tour diary. He can't find anything wrong in his host country; the language is very polite; he is oh-so enthusiastic about everything he sees; he hasn't had one single awkward moment or encounter; no disappointments. The tour diary doesn't have the zing that a slightly skeptical eye would bring to its reports. Its cheerleading flavor makes it a bit prosaic at the moment; I wish he would question a bit more even as he tries to keep it true to its impressionistic mission.
