In a few hours, I'm off to India! My schedule is as follows:
First to Bombay (Mumbai), to visit a friend and see some movie stars.
Then on to Jaipur, to visit a maharaja's palace (and stay in the palace of another royal family) and see if we can catch any elephant polo (yes, that is polo with elephants instead of horses).
Then, of course, to the Taj Mahal.
And off to Goa, where you can eat incredible seafood, drink tropical juices, see beautiful beaches...
...And visit Catholic churches, including one where St. Francis Xavier is on display in a Snow-White-like gold and glass casket.
And then to Madras (Chennai), bustling South Indian cinema and commercial hub, where shopping will be done.
And then to Madurai, as below, where I'll finally be able to post again! Back in ten days!
