... full as the Indian one!). We were in the tourist area as there was a local stand which resembled a crowd at a football match, complete with huge Indian flags! The crowd was awash with colour and there was very much a party feel to the whole spectacle.

... can wait in. Baska not too happy, she just wanted a shower and a sleep. But there you go. I left her nursing a coffee, and set off to explore the surroundings. I turned left outside the hotel, walked 10 metres to the corner, and there at the end of a short street was the magnificent Golden Temple. We really couldn't be much closer.

It is the most uncomfortable train I've ever been on in a foreign country, largely because of the creepy men in our compartment being, well, wrong... and not because of the lack of pillows.
