... side! There was a small strip of road that was cleaved in half by 2 large gates which were 2m apart. One gate was the entrance from India (painted in the flags colours) and the other gate was the entrance to Pakistan (painted in black, white and green). As the ceremony began we saw both sides taunt each other with military personnel who would march theatrically towards the gates and stop on their own sides. The marching would include huge high kicks and stamps that got ...

... standing outside his cafe next to a very Heath-Robinson tandoor. As I watched, he skilfully prepared a paratha and slapped it on the inside of the tandoor. Within a very few minutes, he fished it out, onto a plate with some chutney, and served this typical Punjabi breakfast to a waiting customer. Right, I'll have some of that. I stood with him, learning the techniques, and soon walked back to the hotel with an excellent breakfast wrapped in yesterday's newspaper.

... We arrive at Amritsar Junction station at 13:45...only ten minutes late, not bad. We know our hotel is walking distance but who knows where and at only 50 rupees for a tuk tuk it's not worth the hassle.
