Firstly (and very importantly) we are no longer in Delhi, and will most likely not return!! Arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal yesterday.....but back to Delhi.....A vibrant, majestical feast where all of the nine senses are aroused beyond anything we'll ever experience again. The place is completely fucking crazy...People, cows, rats,goats, pigs, eating, pissing, shitting together almost as one....Maybe it is a higher plain of existance! The polltion in the air stings the eyes and gives you a sore throat not to mention the streptocockeal menengeo syphilis i got from walking down the street! The roads and driving are one of the most insane things here....not an inch given, not a mm even....and total chaos....completely terrifying...you just have to look away and go wit it!The haggling and the hoards of hawkers is scary and intimidationg  at first but once you join in and take the piss a bit its good buzz!We headed to Agra on the train (About 4 hrs) to go see the taj mahal which was indeed spectacular, although most of the time in the q and inside we were shaking hands and posing for phots with natives (Fame at last). Unfortunately we couldn't get the train back as it was 'full' (this has a new updated definition which obviously includes the area outside and within 4 metres of the actual area defined! Anyway. we got an 8 hour bus back from Agra to Delhi which was an amazing experience....didnt see a foreigner the whole way and were famous celebreties again...actually the look of shock on the natives faces when they saw us get on this bus....probably comparable to the looks on our faces when we saw the inside of the bus! We did make it back to our extremely dodgy 'hotel' in Delhi....where to our great surprise our belongings remained! To impossible to get pics on comp over here so far, hope to sort that soon though.Jerry springer final thought.....It is amazing how humans can carve a home and existance out of apparently absolutelt nothing and live...La vie trouvera son chemin!.... Ah....Kathmandu!


Un petit commentaire en francais..on s'attendait au pire an arrivant a delhi, mais c'etait plutot calme a l'aeroport, du moment que tu sais (ou du moins que tu pretends savoir) ou tu vas, tu peux marcher tranquil, mais si tu commences a rever, tu meurs ecrase a coup sur!c'est fatiguant de devoir marchander le prix pour tout, meme a l'hotel il m'a ajoute une taxe de 25% mais y'avait pas moyen.. le voyage jusqu'au taj mahal etait un grand challenge, le taxi pour la gare faisait du 20 km /h, on a reussi a trouver le train in extremis.. a la gare d'agra, tout le monde nous suivait partout, et arrives au taj, y'avait une queue immense.. mais c'est affolant comme un monument peut declencher autant d'emotions.. on a passe 90% de notre visite a prendre des photos et a chercher des toilettes.. y'avait tres peu de touristes etrangers, et les differentes couleurs des saris nous ont permis de faire de superbes photos.. mais malheureusement je peux pas les "uploader" sur cet ordi alors j'essaierais plus tard! pn etais comme des celebrites a agra, tous les enfants voulaient nous serrer la main et prendre des photos avec nous! helene j'ai bcp pense a toi! le bus du retour etait un vrai cauchemar... 7h, meme plus ds un bus.. apres un bout de temps ca va on s'habitue, mais nos yeux et nos poumons en ont pris un coup.. et aussi la peur de finir ds un fosse... mais bon c'est a faire!
on est a kathmandu, il fait 23 degres, et c'est bien plus tranquille ici...on va aller trouver qqc a manger.. a bientot et bon anniv a francois si jamais j'ai pas acces avant le 26!
