Another reason to retire to India (NOT)

Maxim magazine is not the first place I would look to for retirement planning, but this article titled How to Quit Your Job and Live Like a King lists Manali, India as one of 4 places to "escape the rat race".

Located at the north end of India's famed Kullu valley, the area around Manali features Hindu temples, incredible hiking, and absolutely insane views of the adjoining Himalayan peaks.

According to the article, less than $4K gets you a bed at a local hostel and four meals a day for a whole year.

But what made me chuckle was the following:
Don't bother asking any local expats what brought them to Manali. It's the weed.

Not exactly what I had in mind when I started this blog, but fun to know nevertheless.
