We’ve spent yesterday and today scouting Delhi in preparation for the tour, and this afternoon we hopped on a train to Amritsar,
Amritsar is in the state of Punjab, in the north of India, and the reason we’re here is to see the Golden Temple – one of the great spiritual sites of India – sacred to the Sikhs.
The train trip took 6 and a half hours. It was comfortable, the food was edible, the toilets were prison yard standard.
Not that I’ve used a toilet in a prison yard….
But I can imagine.
Before leaving for the railway station, we stopped in at Ghandi’s Tomb – where Jennifer became suddenly in demand to be in everyone’s photos…
And at India Gate, she had her hands adorned with henna –
And then the train, and a fascinating journey.
We’ve arrived late, and tomorrow we go to the Golden Temple, and to the Wagah Border ceremony…
