... see the sharp contrast of the mountainous region compared to the relative flat of what we had just been driving. The river was red with soil from the hills.
somewhere around here there were the five Indian soldiers shot by the Pakistani army the day before.
... a long way away, so it really made sense for him to fly. He left for the airport at 5:30AM.
ALL DAY BUS RIDE
We were on our way to Amritsar some 500 km south. We planned to overnight in Jammu to break-up the journey. We walked to the corner and took an auto rickshaw the kilometer and a half to the public bus stand. We knew a bus would take longer than a car, but ...
... too soon!
The sky opens, and it turns out the bus has a leaky roof. Leaving the flat plains behind, we wind our way once more up into lush green hills. The downpour grows more intense by the minute, and I have to shift seats.
And here we are - Dharamsala! It's a 5 minute wait for the connecting bus to McCleod Ganj and I find myself in comfortable Sharma Cottage, which has big rooms and hot water, all for about #3 a night.
Time for a good sleep, I reckon!
... It had been a long 26 hours and we didn't want to go through the hassel of getting a 2nd class ticket, trying to find a sleeper seat, bribing the conductor, blah blah blah. Then we talked to the tourist desk and they said there was a train direct to Mumbai! only 32 hours long! Special train that only runs every week or so. It left the next morning. We're so on it!
An early start this morning, like 4am, so I could go to the Golden Temple one more time and get some pictures at dawn. Then off to the bus station to catch a bus to Jammu; from there on to Srinagar tomorrow is my plan. There isn't much else of interest in Amritsar to keep me here and it's a typical Indian city in that it is overcrowded, noisy, dirty and polluted.
There isn't anything worth seeing ...
