I am headed off to india for a post graduate year after higschool and was wondering what i should do to keep my mando alive and kicking. it will be kinda hot, (not too bad by india's standards) 85-95 F, but i am more worried about monsoon season, where it rains forever al the time. i am getting my mandolin set up with a new bridge, a new nut, a fret dress, etc, but what should i do to combat humidity and heat?
also, i read here that if you have an mandolin, they are required to let you on the plane with it as a personal item because it is an instrument. is this true? i am flying air india and they say i am only allowed one carry on, my backpack. i think they know that i also want to take an instrument. does anyone know anything about this?
also, any cool mando-places in india? probly not huh...
