    Ding, Dong, Dehli....

    Well lads n ladies arrived safe n sound into India, stayed in Amriisar for a few days made the phone call to me gran, and then started to head south. For anybody who has never rode in India its a bloody nitemare. Trying to avoid other road users, camels, cows, beggars and anything else that moves on this earth. No body obeys any sort of rules of the road, tractors coming the wrong way down the overtaking lane of motorways, its like a video game with only one life.

    Dehli was crazy, stayed just outside it. But had to go through it to go south and ofcourse i got lost !!! feck me did i laugh
    Had to ride like the locals and turn arround and ride the wrong way down a six lane road, got to a hospital and rode right through the middle of it, now i mean right through the middle of it cripples to the left of me cripples to the right, feck me it was mad, cut across the grass and was finally back on the right road heading south for Agra where the Taj Mahal is.

    Agra is another traffic, beggar and tout mad house, but had to go and see the Taj and to be honest it was OK (but thats me not really into that sort of thing)
    Decided I had to get out of these real tourist place and find some where not as bad, and thank the Lord ive found Orchha (the hidden place)

    So this is where i intend to spent Christmas and maybe new year, i am sitting writing this over looking the river with temples all around, staying in a cheap wee hotel 4euros a nite with clean sheets, western WC and a TV lads i am in heaven.
    So just to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
    on the road

    I took this a couple of weeks ago in Jaisalmer... a government authorised Bhang shop with the Trotters next door.
    The traffic (and pollution in Delhi) is horrendous isn't it?

    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    Happy Christmas Joe. Mind the body.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    I'm really interested, much appreciate the posts and have added Orchha to my fantasy route for India. Looks like Orchha is about N25 05.412 E78 48.114

    Have a great time over Christmas.

    enjoy

    thx for the christmas txt, Joe.
    The weather here is crisp with icy conditions during the last wk. dark mornings, dark nights but at least the gales and rain has gone away. A bright robin is bouncing in the driveway, and a rat has been entertaining us in the back garden. Same old same.
    I'm sure that you are wishing that you were here in the cold dark damp instead of lounging in exotic climes, sweltering in the heat, messing with some chicks.
    Watch out for the cows, don't park behind elephants, avoid the tigers and don't play with the snakes.
    Enjoy and keep up the travelogue, we need something bright in the dark days of our winter.
