Welcome to my travel diary for India, which I visited from November 1997 to January…
Temples, crowds, heat and humidity.
The utter confusion of arriving in India for the first time.
Buying train tickets, the Red Fort, Jamil Masjid mosque, Connaught Circus.
An early train into the mountains to the hill station of Shimla.
Strolling around Shimla.
Swarming monkeys at a temple of Hanuman, the Vice Regal Lodge colonial pile.
A bus to Mandi; getting to know a fellow graphic designer.
A day of sickness.
