I am both idealist and realist. For there is no point in ideals if they cannot be realised.

Museums, forts, palaces and temples

9 February 2001

What do all of those things have in common? Well – to me, they’re all bloody boring, and yet this is what I’ve been paying over the odds money for so far. Bloody hell, what a stupid fool I was to ever go to that daft tourist agency, but… today I managed to get a handsome some back from them for cancellation, and so now I’m living the way I wanted from the beginning – I have no idea what I’m going to do this afternoon, let alone tomorrow!

The moon and stars here are much brighter/bigger than in England – the moon looks about twice it’s normal size, and I can see Venus (I think it’s Venus) very clearly from the early evening.

I think I might buy a train ticket to Puri, on the East coast, which is a total of three train journeys, all about 12 – 24 hours each! From there, I’ll go a little further south and then head to Mumbai in about three/four weeks to get an (earlier than originally planned) plane to Singapore.
