From the hustle and bustle of Mumbai to Varanasi—one of the holiest cities in the world—there’s a lot to watch out for if you want to keep your cool in India. Join Dr Mike as he bravely takes a dip in the Ganges, endures leech therapy and meets some cranky monkeys with a thirst for blood.
Home to over a billion people, there’s a lot to watch out for if you want to keep your cool in India. Join Virologist Dr Mike Leahy as he travels from the chaotic metropolis of Mumbai to Varanasi—India’s spiritual and cultural heart. With so many people living in such close quarters, India is also home to a vast population of nasty bugs keen to invade or attack the unwary…and the overly inquisitive. From intestinal hitch hikers to a beetle with a specially developed arsenal of chemical weaponry, Mike sees and experiences more than he plans to in one of the world’s largest and most diverse countries.
