I’ve been in Delhi only two days but feels like it’s been about ten. India is such an all consuming country, it demands your attention every minute and there’s no getting away from it – not a chance that you can think for one moment that you’re somewhere else. Lucky for me that I love it so much, otherwise I think I would be about ready to head home. Although I could do without the 40 degree heat!
I’m about to run out the door and catch a night train to Lucknow – this will be my first train ride in India and I’m nervous and excited. I’ve heard so many amazing stories and a few scary ones. To be honest, with my jetlag not allowing me to sleep combined with a few 4am starts, I’m quite looking forward to ten hours uninterrupted sleep! If I’m lucky.
