    India fast food

    November 2, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Here are a couple of examples of India fast food...street food.

    The first is a puff type pastry, a hole is poked in it and stuffed with a potato mixture.
    The next is a complete hot meal. Under the plate noodles are cooking as there are hot coals underneath the noodle pot. The surrounding dishes are the toppings. It is served in newspaper!Read more

    Off to Nepal

    November 4, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Travel day, Calcutta Airport to Kathmandu Nepal. Air India flight 247 non stop direct. Some of our fellow travellers from the boat are on the same flight. It’s about an hour and and a half long and Air India served a hot meal.
    When we arrived in Nepal we arrived at the same time as some other international flights, and the customs area was crowded. Liz and Alan, Dianne and I all have e-visas that we got online. We need to pay the 30 USD each for our visas on arrival. There is a line up to pay, and a line up to validate your visa. There is another lineup for you if you don’t have a e-visa, which we thankfully avoid. Still it takes well over an hour to complete the process. After that’s all done, they scan you for metal before you pick up your luggage. I’m pretty stressed by the time we get our suitcases. A couple of times I thought I was going to have to tune some people up about manners and big crowd behaviour. It all worked out without the extra drama, and we were greeted by our guide Abit.
    It’s dark now as we exit the airport and ride to our hotel. Immediately it strikes us that Nepal is cleaner than the last place we were. The roads are rough, and the air is dusty, but it is cooler and our hotel is an oasis from that.

    Cruising the Ganges

    October 29, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Welcome ceremony, safety briefing and we are on our way as we eat lunch. The rest of the day we cruise upstream and take in all the sights that both banks have to offer. We are a spectacle. People take out cellphones as we go by and take pictures and videos of our passing. I didn’t expect that.Read more

    North India

    October 28, 2008 in India ⋅ 28 °C

    Nordindien war definitiv bis heute die exotischste Reiseregion die wir bereist haben. Man muss aber sehr robust sein, um sich dort nicht irgendeine Magen-und Darminfektion der üblerer Sorte zu holen. Wenn ich mich recht erinner hatte ich auf dieser Reise teilweise damit zu kämpfen. Oberste Regeln für Indien: Nur Wasser aus dem sehr guten Supermarkt trinken. Kein Eis essen. Nicht von Tellern und mit Messer und Gabel essen. Die sind alle mit unsauberem Wasser gereinigt worden. Alte englische Regel einhalten: "cook it, peel it, or leave it". Selbst die Zähne nur mit frischem Wasser aus dem Supermarkt säubern.

    North India

    October 30, 2008 in India ⋅ 30 °C

    Das war eine der schönsten Reisen, die wir mit Intrepid je gemacht haben. Die Gruppe war gut und die Reise durch den den Nordwesten von Indien und zum Ende mit der Eisenbahn bis nach Kalkutta ein echtes Erlebnis, was wir nie vergessen werden. An die Details der Reiseroute kann ich mich heute nur noch vage erinnern.
