Having seen the magnificent Golden Temple by night when it was all lit up today we visited by day. As it was a Saturday there was no way we would have been able to see the holy book due to the crowds so we were so pleased our guide suggested for us to go at night and we got to see it being put to bed. Sounds daft but to see the reverence on the …
... Raju came and picked us up to go and see The Wagah Border Closing Ceremony, on the Wagah Border funnily enough. This ceremony is to close the border for the day between India and Pakistan and is now something of a daily pantomime. It was one of the best things I have seen in a long time for entertainment purposes. Raju dropped us off and we had to walk quite a long way as cars wernt allowed but the bloody touts were !

Hahaha packed like a guiness book of records challenge! Sardines in a can have more space .
And lucky us, our request was confirmed. There are always some tourist quota, even when the train has waiting lists.
