I’m stuck in the hotel room today in Rishikesh trying to recover from a sinus infection (that’s what I get for spending 7 hours on a FREEZING cold bus full of sick people, I guess!), so I thought I’d upload some of the pictures and videos I’ve taken recently!
Some of the heavy traffic in Delhi
A stray dog we befriended one morning over breakfast in Delhi. We called him Ralph. All the stray dogs here are charming, friendly and polite – not to mention gorgeous. We suspect that a lot of them are descended from Afghan Hounds that the Moguls brought here long ago – they are all very tall and graceful with long, Afghan-looking faces. I’m trying to convince Mitch that we should bring one home with us!
