  • Feb 6th: AgraAs I write this I am sitting in the hotel bar, drinking a passable chenin blanc and watching a sitar player and his accompanying percussionist play for the lobby. No I am not kidding. The rest of the Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 6, 2016
  • India: PushkarAfter the night we'd had in Tordi, I for one was glad our next stop was Pushkar; the spiritual home of India, a Hindu pilgrimage, a place where no meat, eggs or alcohol can be found or consumed. A veritable Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 6, 2016
