Hashish, Madam?

One of my favorite memories of my first visit to Nepal (1998) is of being called "madam" when offered drugs. It didn't stop at hash either, but was usually followed up by opium, grass, and so on. This trip has proved to be simillarly amusing, although I think the list of products may have increased.

A few years in India (and 10 years of hard living) has somewhat taken the shine off of being addressed "madam", though.
