    Brilliant... Thanks for taking the time again...

    Brought back some great memories of India for me. I was watching that BBC4 Indian railways programme last night too... I've not been to India for over 20 years but the urge to return is getting unbearable. I'm going to have to do something about it very soon...

    Do it. DO IT NOW. Before it's too late I'm thinking of trying to do London to Mumbai via Everset next year if you fancy coming

    I would dearly love to but am still a wage slave trapped in the 9 to 5, two kids, mortgage, elderly parents cycle... 5 years sees me out of it... provided I've big enough balls to jack the job in!!

    Last time we were there we were young, foot loose and fancy free. Spent 4 months backpacking. I've been looking at October flights for this year... that'll just be a two week trip using public transport I reckon. It'll have to satisfy me for now!

    The kids would get a lot out of a vist out there too wouldn't they. Sounds like a plan anyway - where will you go?

    There's loads of places we would love to go that we either didn't do last time or would like to revisit...2 weeks isn't much and we prefer to go easy pace than charge headlong, American tourist style..but not been to Chennai, Kolkata, Ranthambor, the Punjab... Sri Lanka too but that will have to wait for another trip. Just need to work out what's feasible in two weeks with spending too much time travelling.. Its been that long since we were there I'm out of touch..

    Kids no interest but will have flown the nest soon enough! They've seen plenty of Europe, Hong Kong, Australia and NZ with us so they aint done badly!

    All sounds good to me. I've never been to Sri Lanka either. India is so huge and diverse you could spend a lifetime wandering about. I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun on public transport mate. You're a braver man than me!

    A great reportage, human feelings and a great bridge passing! I enjoyed and have the feeling that that region tears me to itself!

    The usual terrific fare from you Squire. The photos alone are terrific. These, along with your others would make for a terrific book.
    I've been lucky enough to visit India twice (with work) & absolutely love the place. A trip like this is very much on my 'To do' list, sooner rather than later but there is no way I'll be going on one where I can hear my food being slaughtered!
