comment What are the facilities like at Lille Europe station after Eurostar checkin?
I took the Eurostar from Lille around 4 years ago. I'm not sure if I remember it well but in my memory the immigration is done after you already reached the facilities area, not before. I remember some cafes but I think there weren't enough seats (my memory may be betrayaling me though).

comment Getting a SIM card (prepay) in India
@jpatokal: I tried at a store in the City Centre Mall and they told me that only postpaid cards are sold in India. Then I tried at another store near the same mall and the guy there told me that there is a lot of bureacracy for foreigners so the sellers just refuse to sell the cards to outsiders and sugested me to try to ask for a SIM card at my hotel. So I did, and the hotel told me that they could get it for the guests in the past but they don't do it anymore because of bureacracy. I will try at the place you told me.

Where exactly in Chennai was this little shop? I've already given up trying to get a prepaid SIM card in Chennai...

comment Paying by credit card while overseas cheaper in US dollars or in the local currency?
Sorry, it was not clear in my question but US dollars is not my local currency. Although your principle still applies to my scenario. It is easy for me to have an idea on how much I'm paying in dollars than in the hotel's currency.

@hippietrail my country currency is not US dollars. The guy offered me this option because US dollars are a universal option.

comment One month in India: eating tips to getting spiced-out
Sorry, but I have to say that their yoghurt is really bad. About the lemonade, some locals told me that for children they counteract the spice by squeezing lemons on the food.

comment Finding if a medicine is available in India
Thanks for the answer. My medicine is likely to be considered a controlled one and since I haven't found it on the list you provided, I guess I will have to take it from home.
