          We arrived in the early hours , we had already pre booked our room via email, they let us in no problem, we felt very welcomed here, The room was clean and tidy with tea making facilities, The owner and staff were very friendly, the food in the restaurant below was fantastic, I'm sure we ate more then we should of but it was so tasty. Would definitely recommend this to any backpacker.

Delek was recognised with a nomination for the Kochon prize worth $65,000 dollars for their excellent work on TB, which was then withdrawn due to political pressure on the World Health Organisation. The hospital is administrated by the Central Tibetan Government in exile which is not recognised by the United Nations and there is political pressure from the Chinese Government not ...

McLeod Ganj is the seat of the exiled government of Tibet headed by the Dali Llama who was somewhere else at the time. Pretty much all of the small town of McLeod Ganj, and indeed the larger town of Daramsala located lower down the slopes,, is populated by ex-pat Tibetans who, or at least their parents or grandparents, fled the country in the early 1950s when ...

          ... opened up and we finally moved after 4 hrs. Everyone were tired and hungry. So we stopped at the last village (Kothi) on the way to Manali. Two of us were down. One had fever and the other had headache. The roads were very curvy and I could see a lot of tourists were puking because of motion sickness. We got down 1 km away from the hotel as the traffic was too much and started walking to our hotel. We just collapsed on our beds the moment we reached.

          ... There was still the hint of India though with the tuk tuks racing through the streets, horns sounding continuously, as they dodged the tourists and the burgundy robed monks. Every now and again, a cow appeared out of nowhere amongst the hustle and bustle. The tranquility of the Basunti was a stark contrast to the chaos and poverty of McLeodGanj. I wasn't sure if I was going to find my 'Chakra' here after all. After a brief list of 'Do's and Don'ts from Gill, i.e. Don't eat ...

          ... Delhi and beyond!

          Fill up on potato samosas - *way* more filling than the onion ones. Off we go, and see the games of cricket in action as we leave the suburbs behind. See the monkeys climbing around on walls, playing about by the side of the track. It's dusty here, a bit crumbly. Not all brightly painted like Kerala. It's definitely grittier up North. See now the lines of yellow and green tuk-tuks.

          Lots of water towers. A guy sweeps the floor for tips. See ...
