  • The best day of the trip!Dec 31 – On to Agra We caught an early morning train to Agra getting there about 11:30am. The train ride was uneventful but we did meet a young girl who engaged us in conversation for quite a while. It Posted by CWalts in India - Camels, Color, Curry | Dec 31, 2011
  • Jaipur - Exciting, loud, frantic - Love it!Dec 29 – Jaipur After stopping at the hospital to have my finger checked and re-dressed we headed to Jaipur.

  • Interesting but hard to get to...Our driver picked us up at 9am sharp and we headed to Bundi by way of Chittagargh. The road is very rough so the travel is very slow going. Now that we have been to Bundi, not sure we would Posted by CWalts in India - Camels, Color, Curry | Dec 24, 2011

  • A leisurely day touring JaisalmerWe decided not to rent bikes and instead spend more time in the fort and the old city. We hired a guide at the entrance of the fort – 'Sikh'. He was very good and provided very detailed explanations Posted by CWalts in India - Camels, Color, Curry | Dec 17, 2011
  • The Golden CityThe train trip from Delhi to Jaisalmer is 921 km and took about 17 ½ hours. Sounds daunting but we slept a lot and the time seemed to go by without incident. We traveled in an AC2 sleeper car. Posted by CWalts in India - Camels, Color, Curry | Dec 16, 2011
  • Noise, traffic, smog....Staying in Old Dehli is definitely an assault on the senses but it is exciting and interesting and definitely not for everyone.

  • Old and NewToday we hired a car and driver who took us on a 'city tour' most of this was in 'New' Delhi but everything we saw was ancient - tombs, houses of worship etc. It was interesting to see the Posted by CWalts in India - Camels, Color, Curry | Dec 15, 2011
  • Cheerio from ChennaiAn early morning departure from Pondicherry during another rain storm sees us on the coast road up to Chennai. The road is straight and fairly empty and within minutes we seem to have left the wet behind. All along the Posted by Jean-and-Tony in The Indian Experience! (2014) | Nov 12, 2014
  • Poncing about in PondicherryDespite what you may have heard about the caste system in India there are only three types of people.

  • Turmoil in TamilOur stay in A Beach Symphony has finished. It was a fine three days of relaxing in beautiful surroundings but we were much disturbed by some dogs in a neighbouring property.

  • Calm in KerelaLeaving Mumbai we fly south to Cochin in the long narrow state of Kerala. A new language and a new alphabet; such a shame as we had mastered two Hindi words. The people here speak the palindromic Malayalam and their Posted by Jean-and-Tony in The Indian Experience! (2014) | Oct 30, 2014
  • The people and the group...The group dynamics are nearly as much fun as a camel ride but much more bumpy. There is no guarantee that someone won't get hurt.

  • Mumbai, our kind of town....We landed in Mumbai soon after sunrise and the city was only partially visible through a smoggy haze.
