Aires de tranquilidad...

El fresquito de Mc Leod Ganj nos gustó así que decidimos no dejar los Himalayas. Nos dirigimos a Manali en el Valle del Kullu. Manali es también un lugar que atrae mucho turismo, tanto extranjero como del propio país. Nos alojamos en Old Manali (Manali viejo) que es donde se asentó en...

Chattru continued....

the meal last nigth was great- chicken lasagne and the film was X-men original Wolverine- it was definately a DVD rip becasue half the graphics were missing from the second half- you could see the strings on Wolverine when he jumped in the air, and the explosions hadnt been created! To...

Mooching in Manali

On the bus to Manali we experienced a fantastic example of Indian driving. A lorry had stopped in the middle of the road, causing our bus to come to a standstill just behind it. No sooner had we stopped than the lorry started reversing. The bus driver started frantically beeping the horn, but I...

Quotes I like

Happenings and Ponderings

Anchok just came over to my tent, and we sat in silence for a little while. Now he is rummaging thru my things. Wow, that looked like it might have been the first time he has ever worn a pair of sunglasses! It is unimaginable to me to not wear eye protection in this intense sunshine, but I...

We caught the bus, well waited inj the hotel to be picked up, 20mins late, then followed this man to the bus station, stopping at every hotel on the way....
