A Mustache Dérive in Ahmedabad

"עם בוקר הגענו להודו ויצאנו לרחוב. נכרים הינו, ולא ידענו כי זה רחוב סתם. בטוחים הינו, כי אותה שעה נסתיימה הצגה בששים רבוא בתי קולנוע, או התרחשה רעידת אדמה באחד הפרברים וכל תושביו יצאו במנוסה [...] תפסת מרובה - אמרנו לעצמנו - לא תפסת. להקיף את מלוא מחזה הרחוב הזה לא נוכל. לפי כך נאחז בפרט אחד. ראשים, למשל."   ע. קרליבך, מתוך "הודו - יומן דרכים" / Azriel Carlebach, "India: Account of a Voyage"

A Mustache Dérive Map

 Dérive Rules

1.   Proceeding across town from one mustache to another, following the Mustache map (presented above).
1.1. The Derive starts when you see the first man with a mustache in the street. You search for his mustache type in the mustache map and continue from there.
1.2. Once you find the required mustache - you move on to look for the next one on the map.
1.3. In case you didn't find the mustache after a 30 minute walk, you should board a Rickshaw (only such one which is driven by a mustached driver) and tell the driver the name of the mustache as the destination address. At the end of the journey you should continue to the next mustache, following rule number 1.
2.   Breaks may be taken whenever needed, only after you identified a mustached person in that place.

An Additional Rule Added During the Dérive

3.   When raining - The Dérive is carried out via bus, provided you stay on that bus until you have identified 10 different mustaches (or till the last stop). After getting off that bus, board a different line in order to continue the Dérive.
