The long and grinding road

Coimbatore, India

OK, so I was wrong about 250km being too much in a day. Yesterday we set off at 7am, and 16 hours and 540km later arrived in Coimbatore. Then spent the next hour wandering around the ghost town trying to find anywhere open to get food, or beer, or soft drinks, or even water. Finally managed to get some Sprite, so that was a tasty dinner! For those who were up for it, there was then a 4-hour round trip to a tea Plantation starting at 7am, but I just couldn't face it, especially as we've got another 220km to do in the truck this afternoon. So it's TV, book and food for me. Exciting times.

Hi Mike, Sounds like you're having an interesting (!) time there, enjoy reading the blog.....highlight so far?

All good here, off to Spain tomorrow for a week, Marbella not quite as exotic as Mumbai eh? That's what you get for being up the duff! Just 12 weeks left to go! Aaargh!

Hope you're being a good boy, cashed in those brownie points for beach camping in Goa? Any tottie on the truck? Am sure someone has a twinkle in their eye....

When do you go to China?

Keep posting, Lisa Marie xxx
