A very basic room in a basic hotel. Don't expect luxury! However, it's reasonably clean and conveniently located to sightseeing spots, so getting to them won't cost a lot of time and money. Staff is friendly. Bathroom is Western toilet with shower/faucet combo in same space, meaning no tub or stall, so you are showering in front of the toilet! It's not as bad as it sounds, honestly. Better than camping. Overall, would recommend as I don't see why not!

It is said his favourite wife was Jodhaa Bai for whom he built a temple and even a separate kitchen (as she was a strict vegetarian). Their story was the subject ...
... have walked up and down everyday and was nice to feel a connection to what is ultimately a part of me.
The next stop, unbeknown to us, was going to be near on impossible -to find two graves in a very overgrown and neglected military / catholic cemetery.
When we arrived we were met by a very fat and unhelpful man claiming to be the cemetery 'secretary' saying we couldn't ...
... our travels of northern India. Tomorrow we leave for kathmandhu then fly from there to pokhara.
