Our journey across India has been great so far. And aside from all of the stares, which have been seriously off-putting, the touts, the rickshaw driver yells, it has been really great!
The trains have been very good - very relieved that we booked them though as Indian queues are an experience - and we have been to a peaceful Bodhgaya, a crazy Varanasi where we took a lovely dawn boat ride with a tiny 10 year old rower (we thought it would be his dad taking us but it was him!!), and a stunning Taj Mahal.
We arrived in Rajasthan to discover that there is a festival here, so we saw an amazing parade and finished with an unusually luxurious dinner in a revolving restaurant. It looked weird from the outside and was very surreal! It also made me a bit dizzy after all the rocking from our train journeys.
Further west into Rajasthan this afternoon and then north towards Chandigarh...
