Wouldn't believe it

I saw a calf with horns and part of a second head on its backside.
It was the weirdest thing. I don't know why anyone would believe me that I really saw such a thing. And I didn't have my camera handy to document it, since I was fresh off the plane and it was still packed away.
I was in the taxi passing what I thought was the usual sight of Hindu-girl-parading-decorated-calf, but it turned out to be different than the usual.
My incredulity and jet lag delirium were so great, that I can't even be sure myself that it was real.
And I can't prove it was.
Now that I think of it, that's a pretty good metaphor for my whole existence here in Delhi: Is that real? Did I truly just see what I think I saw?
I wouldn't believe that even if I did just see it myself.
