27. Our Canadian

Fig. 27-1: The King of Pants

Introducing Louis-Philippe: We first saw him in Darjeeling, we met him on a trek to Tsongu Lake in Gangtok (Sikkim), and we've all been traveling together since the train to Varanasi.

At first we were pretty sure that he was French—though we were wrong—and in the time since we met him, he has proven that the Quebecois are truly the Al Newman of the international travel scene: this kid can spit filthy lines in German, chat coyly in Korean, and speaks English just as naturally as he speaks French. On top of all this: he's funny and he cuts our hair—of which mine is currently in a funny state, but that's a story/picture for another day.

It's been nearly a month now, and we're pretty sure this one's a keeper.

To anybody who's keeping track: please say hello to Louis-Philippe.

Hello Louis-Philippe.

That first photo looks like a 1970's singer-songerwriter's album cover or, alternatively, the cover for some underground porno.

New haircut=shaved along the sides and across the back? India is highschool punk all over again?

It's a little more planned than that, but you've got the gist of it. I’m taking retro all the way back to freshman year of high school! 

By the way, Louis took the alternate photo explanation as a great compliment.
