Oct 4, 2004 - Delhi

We took another night train this time to Delhi. But this one was a longer trip, 20 hours so we booked the first part in 2nd class and the second half in a sleeper car. Second class was fine. Better in some ways actually. The windows open and there's a lot more happening so it passes the time better. At one point, when all the windows were open, we passed through a huge dust storm and everyone ran around closing the windows but not before the entire train car filled with dust and you could hardly see. There was a fine layer of grit on...

Sarah's Sojourn

Oct 2, 2004 - Delhi, India

We made it to India! I am sitting in an internet place in New Delhi right now as Ben and I try to figure out whether or not we should go to Nepal - the verdict is still out... Anyway we arrived in Delhi on Saturday Morning and were greated by a driver who took us to our hotel. This service was well worth the 10 dollars it cost us. Delhi is definitley crazy, crowded, hot and humid. On Sunday we hired another car at the suggestion of our hotel manager (Yatri House, yatrihouse.com) to take us on a tour of Delhi. He took us first to Laxmi...

Sep 25, 2004 - Enter the Madness

Ah!! Sweet Delhi at last!! Actually the only thing sweet about it is the smell of urine in the sun. I arrived early on the morning of Sept 25, 2004 (2:00am to be exact) and low and behold my driver wasn't there. Great! Enter the world of touts. I actually bought a pre-paid taxi to Central Delhi for about Rs.250 but couldn't find the hotel where I was going to stay. The driver suggested a hotel near where I am going to by the bike and we went to one. It's nice, a little expensive Rs.650/night) but nice. I am getting Rs.45/$1USD. Yesterday I...

Kevin Vs India

Sep 10, 2004 - Manali - Delhi

Well, the bus journey started off ok. But there were a group of young Indian men who were on a lads holiday. Two of them study at Birmingham and the others had good jobs and could all speak English perfectly. They were really entertaining and I was really enjoying myself at first, everybody on the bus was joining in the conversation, and they were singing indian songs because I said I liked music! When it got to about 12 'o' clock though I was so tired, and couldn't get comfortable or sleep, and the others wouldn't shut up! So I hardly...

Gemma's RTW trip

Aug 22, 2004 - Delhi

We have arrived safely in Delhi. The flight was fairly uneventful but the ride in from the airport was exciting. Ezra saw his first elephant walking along beside the highway and there are cows everywhere. The traffic was more exciting than a Disneyland rollercoaster. It is busy and dirty but exciting. MAE

Jul 29, 2004 - Farewell Thailand... Hello India!

Hello from India! We made it safely to New Delhi last night. Today was a bit of exploring and making sure to jump right into the amazing Indian food. We went to a Bollywood film that had lots of action with a few flashy musical numbers thrown in. Though we didn't understand the language... it was an interesting time. Tomorrow we are taking a tour of New Delhi and then we hop on a bus for a 16 hour trek north to Dharamsala. India is absolutely incredible... We have more to say about Thailand and lots more photos to share... they will come...

Jun 5, 2004 - My hotel.

My hotel was located in one of the busiest market places in Delhi. Going outside was a bit like steping into a pool of humanity. People hawking stuff in every square foot of space. Being a westerner automatically makes you an atractive target. It took a while to get used to.

May 24, 2004 - Delhi again

Hot and boring third time round. In 10 days managed to achieve 2 things - obtaining my Pakistan visa, and receiving my bike. Both were far more effort than they should have been. Arrived at the foreign post office at 11am to pick up my tent. Eventually at 14.00 someone decided so see me, then decided that someone else would be having lunch, so at 14.30 we went to see the parcels. I was surprised to see that my bike was there too. Apparently that had arrived that day. Everyone was very helpful as we went through the parcels and I answered a...

Genty's Asia - 2004

Apr 29, 2004 - Alicia Demands a Recount

Greetings! This is the first time in 2 weeks that I have returned from our scavenges before midnight and therefore able to write down some thoughts on this travel extravaganza. As you read in my first update on April 16th, we headed that night to Hong Kong. We arrived at the airport and our seats had not been reserved and therefore all of us were condemned to the middle seats, in coach, for the 15 hour flight. You can imagine my state of mind. All I could think about was that I wasn't going to get a wink of sleep and I'd be worthless for...

Apr 19, 2004 - Delhi

We arrived in Delhi at 08:00 in the morning after a not so bad train journey. It was a total of 34 hours, and boy am I glad we stumped up the extra money to pay for 2 tier air conditioning. We both managed to get quite a lot of sleep considering and quite a bit of reading done as well. We also had the company of an Indian named Danjit Singh who talked quite a lot, and was nice, but unfortunately farted quite badly, frequently, and also the miraculous 'jumping boy' called Shera who was a 4 year old amusement throughout the journrey. All our...

Jan 6, 2004 - Delhi

We arrived at Delhi at around 5:00 in the evening and came to the house of a family friend where we were supposed to spend one night before heading off on our own again. However, due to a family emergency, they had to leave very early the next morning. We decided it would be easier for everyone if we left later that night. We had a quick dinner and then set off for downtown Delhi at 10:00pm in search of a place to stay. Please note, never do this. We awoke in the morning and immediately found a better place to stay just down the street....

World Trip 03/04

Dec 30, 2003 - First 2 days in Delhi

December 30, 2003 Well I finally arrived in Delhi yesterday morning at 00.30 and had no trouble getting my luggage and going through customs. I did get a stamp in my new passport, the first one. No-one can see that I flew via Holland. This city still baffles me - the traffic is incredibile - how we ever get to our destination without getting injured or killed is beyound me. You must be a complere fatalist or you would probably have a heat attack every time you go by car, richshaw or bicycle. I wouldn't dare driveon my own here not even a...
