... our bodies rather than enjoying the culinary skills of the Indian people. Mr. Wilson's place had an extension built onto it five years ago making it one of the fancier places in the district. The new building has a type of dormitory on the second floor with 3 other rooms like the one pictured. In our stay here we've seen a French family, an Indian contractor, a French woman and an older man named Tom. He arrived in India over 30 years ago and hasn't left. He ...

Taken from the internet, here's a simple definition of Ayurveda: "Ayurveda is a wholistic system of medicine from India that uses a constitutional model. Its aim is to provide guidance regarding food and lifestyle so ...

... start it again, the annoying horn honk honking at every corner and every single thing on the road, the driver constantly on his mobile, the padded seat that chucks you off after any little bump in the road & the fact that you sit higher than the roof edges hanging over the sides so you can't actually see anything even though your technically outside.... Doesn't change! Same same but different. AND we can't help but get in them everywhere we go to get around. ...

Day 61: Monday March 19th

As it turned out I was quite abit worse than I had thought the previous night. I was forced to take a series of tablets and restrict myself to a very boring diet. I had very little energy and couldn't really leave my room for long periods but still managed to get out and ...

    Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.
