The girls were staying at the Golden temple - free for up the three nights for anyone, and I decided to do that the next night since it would be convenient to see the amazing temple at dawn and dusk.
The Austrians left to go back to McCleod and I met up with girls from London and Switzerland and we hung out around the temple, getting free food one time from the Sikhs who run the temple - very hospitable. They serve food to 50000 people a day there I think.
Met a couple of East Germans from Bonn who took a similar route from Turkey to India, but they went to Kabul to get their Pakistan Visas as they were in Qatar and couldn't get them there... Didn't sound like a good experience that they had, apparently too many children with guns on the bus looking for funds, but they survived.
2 nights in Amritzar and then the direct train to Varenasi.
